Indeed :-( (
The correct link to the docs for some years used to be
but sadly this no longer works for reasons that so far escape me (but I suspect some change at Dropbox?).
Meanwhile here is a PDF version to whet your appetite until I get a html version publicly available.
A partial implementation of fixed-point in a Boost-like style based on proposal N3352 is now available.
This work is the result of developments from 2013-2016, including efforts from GSoC 2015.
The source code is available at: https://github.com/BoostGSoC15/fixed_point
(The master branch will be stable for a while but the develop branch may be updated in the light of your feedback).
Preliminary docs are available at:
We are potentially interested in submitting this work for inclusion in Boost.
We are now requesting comments and suggestions for improvements, corrections and any
further test results if these become available.
Some key library features include:
* proper C++ header-only implementation
* full numeric_limits and <cmath> functions
* flexible template choice of split between resolution and range
* automatic selection of underlying integral representation
* portability and high efficiency for bare metal microcontrollers
* interoperation with Boost.Math
* seamless extension to high-precision using Boost.Multiprecision
* extensive test suite
Thank you for your consideration.
And apologies from Paul.
