Big Number

"...so pretty much just a really big calculator?" - Kevin Strasser

Goal

To take existing (semi-working) code and make it really fast by threading it.

About

In big_num.c there are meathod definitions that together can be used to manipulate numbers that are so large that they could not fit into the largest known CPU registers. Implementing basic functions like ADD and DIVIDE become experemly processor intensive and require a lot of memory. To make certain parts of the code threaded would speed up preformance greatly, esspecially on a multi core system. Go through big_num.c and identify where threading would be possible. Keep your original untouched code around so that after you have threaded a few critical functions in big_num.c you can compare timed execution times.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
