Matthieu, I have successfully tested your <complex.hpp>
code with a fixed-point template class. I used my own
Q15.16 fixed-point representation.
Everything works fine, assuming we modify your header
file according to the suggestions we are currently discussing.
It was a very fun experience.
I actually have complex calculations with 50 decimal
digits of precision and 4 decimal digits of precision
in the same file. Wow! There is absolutely fascinating
potential for generic numeric programming here!
Your complex<T> code also helped me find weaknesses
in my fixed-point code.
My test code is included this e-mail. I encourage you to
try to compile and run this test code. If you have any
problems, don't hesitate to contact me.
You need to simply call do_complex() and do_complex_fixed()
You need to go to the boost sandbox and get John's
<boost/multiprecision/...> stuff from the "big_number"
directory. My tests run OK with boost 1.49 patched
with our proposed Boost.Multiprecision.
My fixed_point.h, two util*.h header files and a modified
version of your <complex.hpp> are included. My fixed-point
stuff is not boost stuff.
Best regards, Chris.
