       Math::BigInt::FastCalc - Math::BigInt::Calc with some XS for more speed


       Provides support for big integer calculations. Not intended to be used
       by other modules. Other modules which sport the same functions can also
       be used to support Math::BigInt, like Math::BigInt::GMP or


       In order to allow for multiple big integer libraries, Math::BigInt was
       rewritten to use library modules for core math routines. Any module
       which follows the same API as this can be used instead by using the

               use Math::BigInt lib => 'libname';

       'libname' is either the long name ('Math::BigInt::Pari'), or only the
       short version like 'Pari'. To use this library:

               use Math::BigInt lib => 'FastCalc';

       Note that from Math::BigInt v1.76 onwards, FastCalc will be loaded
       automatically, if possible.


       FastCalc works exactly like Calc, in stores the numbers in decimal
       form, chopped into parts.


       The following functions are now implemented in FastCalc.xs:

               _is_odd         _is_even        _is_one         _is_zero
               _is_two         _is_ten
               _zero           _one            _two            _ten
               _acmp           _len
               _inc            _dec
               __strip_zeros   _copy

       Original math code by Mark Biggar, rewritten by Tels
       <> in late 2000.  Separated from BigInt and shaped
       API with the help of John Peacock.

       Fixed, sped-up and enhanced by Tels 2001-2003.
       Further streamlining (api_version 1 etc.) by Tels 2004-2007.

       Bug-fixing by Peter John Acklam <> 2010-2015.
