Decimal Plugin for Xojo adds a new number type, Decimal, to REALbasic. Decimal can handle big numbers whose size is only limited by available memory. Decimal can be freely mixed with REALbasic's numeric types. The Decimal type can exactly represent any finite decimal.
The plugin can be used to build 32 and 64 bit Mac, Windows, and Linux applications.
Version 1.1 corrects a problem with RB Integers sometimes not mixing freely with Decimals.
Version 1.1.1 corrects a bug in the Negate function.
Version 1.2 introduces conversion functions, DecimalFromCurrency and DecimalToCurrency.
Version 2.0 is now compatible with REALbasic 2008.
Version 2.1 adds support for Mac OS X (Cocoa Universal).
Version 2.2 supports PPC for Mac OS 10.5 and later.
Version 3.0 uses my fp rather than the gmp multi-precision engine. This allows for a less restrictive license.
Version 3.5 is 64 bit compatible.
Version 3.6 stops most, if not all, memory leaks.
Decimal Plugin was programmed in C++ and compiled with Xcode 9.0, Linux, and MinGW for Windows.
