Description Jauhien Piatlicki (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-04-16 19:17:11 UTC
Created attachment 309169 [details]

C++ wrapper for MPFR introduces new C++ type for high precision floating point numbers – mpreal, which encapsulates low level mpfr_t. All arithmetic and boolean operators (+, -, *, /, >, !=, etc.) are implemented for mpreal numbers through operator overloading technique. Mathematical functions (sqrt, pow, sin, cos, etc.) are supported too. This makes possible to use MPFR calculations in the same simple way as calculations with numbers of built-in types double or float.

Reproducible: always.

It was added to sunrise and will be available after review:;a=tree;f=dev-cpp/mpfrc++
Comment 3 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-04-16 22:03:17 UTC
If you are interested to have it in the main tree, plase poe proxy-maint.
Comment 4 Jauhien Piatlicki (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-04-17 11:54:52 UTC
It's a good idea to have this package in tree.
But where should I ask for Commiter?

And btw what does "poe" mean in "poe proxy-maint"? I'm not fluent in English, but I guess it isn't dev-perl/POE, nor Edgar Allan ) and I don't know another meaning.

Version bump: 20121020
Also this package consists only of one header file now.
Comment 9 Heiko Schäfer 2015-11-02 17:00:47 UTC
Has this bug been forgotten?

I have a proposal: attach this package as USE=cxx to dev-libs/mpfr

I've also did a standalone ebuild for it:
Comment 10 Heiko Schäfer 2015-11-02 17:03:59 UTC
I tested it on x86, if you want to add the keyword.

My test cases:

(ebuilds in the same repo as above)

Hello, everyone.

It seems that at least one ebuild related to this bug exists in the Sunrise overlay at the moment. However, I have to regretfully announce that after a long inactivity period the Sunrise project has been discontinued and the related overlay will be eventually removed. For this reason, I'd like to ask you to reevaluate the ebuilds and consider moving them. If you'd like to maintain a package from Sunrise in Gentoo, please take a look at our Proxy Maintainers [1] project.

Please make sure to take ebuilds from the unreviewed developer Sunrise repository [2] rather than the -reviewed one, since the latter has not been updated for over a year. While at it, please note that:

1. Adding a package to Gentoo requires declaring yourself as an active maintainer for it. All bugs regarding the package will be assigned to you, and you will be expected to maintain it.

2. Some packages may not be suitable for addition anymore. While there's no strong rules that would prevent you from adding a package, it may be a bad idea to add old-unmaintained packages that will shortly result in a large number of bugs reported with no solution. If that is the case, please close the bug as RESOLVED/OBSOLETE to make it easier to find packages worth adding.

3. Some of the bugs were already closed as WONTFIX/OBSOLETE/... while the relevant ebuild was kept in Sunrise. If you disagree with the original decision, you still can add the ebuild via proxy-maint.

4. Pleaes note that many of the Sunrise ebuilds are old and may be buggy. If you decide to move them, please make sure to update/clean them up. The proxy-maint team will also review your ebuilds, therefore making sure they land in Gentoo in good quality.

Once again, thank you for your contribution. We hope that you will still want to contribute to Gentoo, through proxy-maint or otherwise.
