Good evening fellow parroters,
My blog posts will become increasingly technical as time goes on and if you're not into that kind of thing, then TL; DR - I'm working on it.
Still here? Good.
The main idea behind my project is to get usable bindings for GMP integer functions into Parrot. The GMP library is a good choice because it is free (as in beer and as in speech), stable, actively developed for 20 years, and generally fast: there are all kinds of optimizations for different architectures and compilers that there is absolutely no reason we should re-invent the wheel.
