This is Math::BigInt::Pari, a plugin module for Math::BigInt that
replaces Math::BigInt's core math routines with Math::Pari routines.
This package contains a replacement (drop-in) module for Math::BigInt's core,
Math::BigInt::Calc.pm. It needs the new versions of Math::BigInt and
Math::BigFloat as they are from Perl 5.7.x onwards.
How to install:
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
To use it, replace:
use Math::BigInt;
with this:
use Math::BigInt lib => 'Pari';
Please read the documentation under PERFORMANCE in Math::BigInt on when to
use this module and when not.
