I'll try that fix out. Don't worry about the code not running. I just
hacked down a long sequence of typedefs and declarations from a series
of function calls. It doesn't "mean" anything in the form I sent you.
I noticed I still left in a bunch of lines.

<snip code>

I managed to get the code to compile by adding 'explicit' to the constructor
on line 132 of big_integer.hpp.
However, when I tried to run your code under vc7.1 or gcc, the program
requested massive amounts of memory and crashed with a write access
violation, even when not using boost::rational<big_integer> but
boost::rational<long long>. I'm not familiar with the multi_array library,
so I cannot investigate it further.

best regards,
