* Package name    : libmath-bigint-perl
  Version         : 1.95

  Description     : arbitrary size integer/float math package

Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat allow to declare big integers / floating
point numbers as

 $i = new Math::BigInt '123_456_789_123_456_789';
 $i = new Math::BigFloat '12_3.456_789_123_456_789E-2';

All operators are overloaded; operations with overloaded operators preserve
the arguments.

Math::BigInt is also in perl core, this package provides newer versions
