Subject: [boost] [Boost-users] Unbounded integers and shared memory

One of the ISO WG21 C++ Study Groups is investigating the usecases of
shared memory usage with wide arithmetics (Boost.Interprocess,
Boost.Multiprecision, in-house solutions?).
* Are there users that store unbounded numbers in shared memory?
* Will bounded integers satisfy need of those users?
* "unbounded numbers" - numbers (integral, relational, floating point
and others) that can store and operate on any huge value by
dynamically allocating memory as necessary to maintain a
representation of operation results.
* "bounded types" - Numbers (integral, relational, floating point and
others) which bounds are specified in number of bytes/bits/words at
compile time and that do not allocate memory.
Please, response if you are one of such users.
Great thanks in advance!
