Subject: Re: [boost] [multiprecision] New binary floating point type

In paragraph 4 of the cpp_bin_float tutorial, you astutely note
that "providing an allocator
as the final template parameter
causes cpp_bin_float to dynamically allocate the memory it needs"
But the allocator type is no longer the *final* template parameter,
since exponent types and ranges have been added as template
So... is it the 3rd parameter, the 4th-to-last parameter...?
Whatever, but it's not the last.
Groovy big numbers!

Yes, but I'm back now. I exaggerated the return date, just
in case of any big troubles with travel or return to work.
Caught some great scenery and king salmon up to 40 pounds.
cpp_bin_float is looking good to me! And I will keep working
with it and report anything significant.

Done, thanks, John.
