Thank you.
The original proposal specifies the types negatable,nonnegative, cardinal and another one I forgot. I agree thatthe unsigned type would be nice to have. So that one iscalled nonnegative. I haven't figured out how nonnegativeshould interact with math functions and/or with negatable.

Shift operators are not present at the moment.We can look into this.

Thank you for the input. Let's wait for some more commentsand see if this is something we should support.
Best regards, Chris.

I looked over the pdf Paul Bristow shared, and it looks awesome, though
I'd think you'll also need the unsigned variant. I searched for an easy
solution for the notation for signed/unsigned and what you can do is use
a plain `signed` or `unsigned` as a template parameter, which yields
`signed int` and `unsigned int`. That does allow syntax like this:
`fixed_point<42, 6, unsigned>(42)` which is quite neat I think.
Maybe I missed that, but shift operators would be neat. I.e. "static"
shift operators, that is:
fp<7, 5> x = 1.0;
auto shifted = x >> c<1>; //type = fp<7,4>, but the underlying value is
the same.
Another thing I worked on, was a literal operator, using the
`template<char...> operator"` overload. So you could automatically
determine the needed fixedpoint type:
auto x = 5.25_fp; //yields fp<6,2>
I'd have to look how good my code was there, but if youÂ´re interested I
could work on that, to integrate it into your library.
