BCD data type

IF, just IF, someone were to implement such a thing what major math operators need to exist ?

+, -, *, / obviously

what else would YOU need for applications to make such a type useful ?

Mod, Floor, Celing. Not sure if those count.

Guess I had in mind financial type apps for BCD
Cant say I ever used those but … I’ll see what I can do

Some rules for electronic invoicing in Mexico include calculations with pow and sqrt. Same rules use rounding and tuncating.

I’ll see what I can do about those

For financial calculations, Banker’s round.

Should be quite doable :slight_smile:

I’ve got most of the things people have mentioned already

I probably should know this, but how is this different from System.Decimal in .NET?

If he is doing it from scratch because the tool dont have a decent BCD data type, must be for xojo :upside_down_face:

I’m not writing this for .Net :stuck_out_tongue:

Winna Winna Chicken Dinna !!

Turns out I’ll end up needing this since Currency is inadequate
And scaling an Int64 leaves me without enough precision
So I needed “something else”
