Multiple Precision Integers and Rationals

MPIR: Multiple Precision Integers and Rationals, is a fork of the GNU Multi Precision (GMP) library. MPIR is a library for arbitrary precision arithmetic, operating on signed integers, rational numbers, and floating point numbers. It has a rich set of functions, and the functions have a regular interface. MPIR is designed to be as fast as possible, both for small operands and huge operands. The speed is achieved by using fullwords as the basic arithmetic type, by using fast algorithms, with carefully optimized assembly code for the most common inner loops for lots of CPUs, and by a general emphasis on speed (instead of simplicity or elegance). This port is kept up with the MPIR release, which is typically updated a few times a year.
