Support for the full numeric tower.
This extension provides support for large exact integers, exact rational and complex numbers.
The following standard procedures are redefined:
+ - * / = > < >= <= abs max min eqv? equal? exp expt log sin cos tan atan asin acos sqrt quotient modulo remainder exact? inexact? exact->inexact inexact->exact positive? negative? even? odd? zero? number? complex? real? rational? integer? gcd lcm truncate ceiling floor round number->string string->number numerator denominator rationalize magnitude angle real-part imag-part
The following standard procedures are provided:
The following non-standard extended procedures are redefined:
add1 sub1 signum bitwise-and bitwise-ior bitwise-xor bitwise-not arithmetic-shift randomize random
Additionally the following procedures are available:
[procedure] (conj Z)
Returns the conjugate of the complex number Z.
[procedure] (bignum? X)
Is X an extended-precision integer?
[procedure] (ratnum? X)
Is X a ratio?
[procedure] (cflonum? X)
Is X an inexact-complex or a floatingpoint?
[procedure] (rectnum? X)
Is X an exact-complex?
[procedure] (compnum? X)
Is X an inexact-complex?
(define (fac n) (if (zero? n) 1 (* n (fac (- n 1))) ) ) ) )

The code for complex arithmetic was mostly taken from Thomas Chust's complex egg.
The GNU Multiprecision Package must be installed.
To print and read extended numbers, CHICKEN version 1.935 or higher is required. Older versions should still work but will not print anything useful.
