libieeep1788 ============ libieeep1788 is a C++ implementation of the preliminary IEEE P1788 standard for interval arithmetic. Its main focus is the correctness and not the performance of the implementation. For details about the implementation see: Marco Nehmeier libieeep1788: A C++ Implementation of the IEEE interval standard P1788. In Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century (21CW), 2014 IEEE Conference on, June 2014, pages 1-6. DOI: 10.1109/NORBERT.2014.6893854 Be aware that libieeep1788 is work in progress and it is assumed that it is not bug free ... In case of bugs please use the GitHub issue tracker https://github.com/nehmeier/libieeep1788/issues to report bugs. Requirements =================== At the moment the library is runnable/tested on Linux systems with the following requirements: GCC C++ >= 4.9.2 (C++11 support) CMake >= 2.8 Boost >= 1.5.4 (unit_test_framework) MPFR >= 3.1.2 GMP >= 6.0.0 Installation ============ libieeep1788 is a header only C++ library but it uses the cross-platform build system CMake for examples, unit testing and installation. 1) You have to download the sources from https://github.com/nehmeier/libieeep1788 by using the provided ZIP file or by cloning the git repository. 2) It is recommended to use a separate build directory. Assuming that you are in the root directory of the downloaded source files then perform the following steps: mkdir build cd build 3) Now basically you have to perform cmake .. to create the preferred UNIX make files. In this case CMake tries to find the required compiler and libraries by it own. But sometimes it could be necessary export the path to the C++ compiler export CXX=path_to_cpp_compiler and/or to the required libraries export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=path_to_lib1:path_to_lib2 before the call of cmake .. to fulfill the requirements. 4) Now it is time to build the unit tests and the examples make and perform the unit tests make test 5) After a successful test of the library on your computer you can install the header by make install which will install the library to the directory specified by the property DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX which defaults to /usr/local on UNIX systems. If you want to install the library onto an other location you can specify DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX during step 3) by performing cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=path_to_install_dir instead of cmake .. Using libieeep1788 ================== There are some examples in folder examples/ demonstrating the usage of the library. If you want to compile your own program against libieeep1788 it is necessary that you have C++11 support turned on and you link against mpfr and gmp: g++ --std=c++11 prog.cpp -lmpfr -lgmp And of course if libieeep1788, mpfr or gmp are not on the default search path you have to specify it by using option -I.
