Documentation

This library provides new versions of all numeric operations. Specifically, the following standard procedures are re-implemented:

 abs
 complex? number? real? rational? integer?
 exact? inexact?
 zero?
 positive?
 odd? even?
 = < > <= >= 
 max min
 + - * /
 quotient remainder modulo
 gcd lcm
 floor ceiling 
 truncate round
 exact->inexact inexact->exact
 number->string string->number
 exp log sin cos tan 
 asin acos atan
 sqrt
 expt

The library also provides the following definitions:

[procedure] (conj COMPLEX)

Computes the conjugate of COMPLEX.

[constant] i
[constant] -i
[constant] j
[constant] -j

Handy numeric values.

Note: If this library is used in compiled code, the option -usual-integrations and the declaration standard-bindings (implied by -O2) will replace invocations of numeric standard procedures with open-coded versions that support only the basic numeric types provided by the Chicken system. If you use the complex extension and compile with -O2, then add declarations that mark the used numeric primitives to disable in-lining:

(use complex)

(declare 
  (not standard-bindings sin number->string) )

(number->string (sin i))
 => "0.+1.1752011936438i"

(This has been fixed in Chicken version 1.72 and higher)
