No, just normal stuff such as instances of boost::multiprecision::mp_float constructed and copied from other PODs like a regular float, double or long double. For example: boost::multiprecision::mp_float x = 4.4; boost::multiprecision::mp_float y = x / 3; std::cout << std::setprecision(std::numeric_limits<boost::multiprecision::mp_float>::digits10)                << std::scientific                << boost::multipreccision::sqrt(x / y)                << std::endl; ... and so on... But if you have a sequence of them, they can be copied with std::copy or set with std::fill, and the lot. Sincerely, Chris.
