= BigMoney == DESCRIPTION: Represents an amount of money in a particular currency. Backed by BigDecimal, so is safe from float rounding errors. == FEATURES: * Encapsulates an amount with its currency into a single object. * Backed by BigDecimal, so it can store arbitrary-precision values without rounding errors. Useful if you're dealing with fractional cents. == PROBLEMS: * Does not implement all of Numeric, so doesn't quite act like a real number * Doesn't allow currency conversion (patches welcome) * Has a slightly different API than the Money package (http://dist.leetsoft.com/api/money/) == SYNOPSIS: bm = BigMoney.new('3.99') bm.amount #=> BigDecimal.new('3.99') bm.currency #=> :USD bm.to_s #=> '3.99' bm.to_formatted_s('$%.2f') #=> '$3.99' bm.to_formatted_s('$%.2f %s') #=> '$3.99 USD' bm2 = 1.to_big_money bm + bm2 #=> BigMoney.new(4.99) bm + 1 #=> BigMoney.new(4.99) == INSTALL: * Via git: git clone git://github.com/mroch/bigmoney.git * Via gem: gem install mroch-BigMoney -s http://gems.github.com == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2008 Marshall Roch Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
