New on CTAN: bnumexpr

Jean-François Burnol submitted the

                bnumexpr

package.

Version number: 1.1
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Extends eTeX’s \numexpr...\relax construct to big
integers.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

v1.1 of 2014/09/21

\thebnumexpr...\relax is analogous to \the\numexpr...\relax but
for arbitrarily big integers. Example:
     \thebnumexpr 30*(21-43*(512-67*(6133-812*2897)))\relax
which outputs -202785405180. 

Option allowpower furthermore enables ^ for power operations.

By default, bnumexpr uses the arithmetic macros from xint (with /
doing rounded division for compatibility with \numexpr). To reduce
overhead, perhaps at some point these could get extracted from
xint.sty/xinttools.sty and moved to a smaller core package.

Option bigintcalc tells bnumexpr to load package bigintcalc rather
