Thanks for your helpful instruction! I'll look into boost.multiprecision to see how it solve this problem.
But according to your explanation, boost still need its own xml library implementation. Am I correct?
Currently, boost use rapidXML, a 3rd-party xml library, to read or write xml files.
Then I think this project can be divided into two parts.
1. Define a good API and map it to some 3rd-party libraries such as libxml2.
2. Implement a simple xml library for boost.
