Hey Kostas,
Thank you very much for your feedback.
About first point: unsigned boost::real::real<T>::maximum_precision() is
function which returns the maximum precision of a real number object. So,
you are using it wrong way.
It should be used something like this
boost::real::real<int> obj("2");
std::cout<<"The maximum precision is =
"<<obj.maximum_precision()<<std::endl;
if you want to specify the maximum precision for a number, you need to use
set_maximum_precision() function.
ex: obj,set_maximum_precision(10);
Second point:
If you want to get precision iterator of a number, you need to do it like
this
auto itr = obj.get_real_itr().cbegin();
Third Point:
The issue has been resolved and I have added the PR for that.
Fourth Point:
I don't exactly know that reason for such behaviour, I think that was
happening because of base conversion. If you declare that as
real c("999999/10000000", boost::real::TYPE::RATIONAL), then results are
correct. We will try to resolve the issue.
About casting from int and double, we have userdefined literals for them.
If we need such functionality, we will overload the equal operator for type
casting from integer and float to real number.
Thank you
Regards
