Would you be able to provide a short summary of the advantages,
disadvantages or significant differences of your proposal versus
the boost multi-precision library or the C++ std decimal proposal?
The std decimal proposal seems to centre *IEEE 754-2008 * *hardware or
slow software. My proposal is simple to make accounting safer to similar to
SQL (NUMERIC and DECIMAL) using all hardware (including * *IEEE 754-2008
for IBM) but also in embedded processors.*
*I *terminal brain cancer so I want to keep these out 'there'.
