About

Decimal data type support, for COBOL-like fixed-point operations on currency/money values.

decimal_for_cpp

Version: 1.19

This data type is designed to perform calculation with on-fly roundings & to support correct compare function (floating-point compare is unreliable).

Values are stored internally using 64-bit integer, so maximum number of digits is 18.

Precision is user-defined, so you can use this data type for currency rates.

To store decimal in file you can use "unbiased" functions or use stream i/o.

Examples

Example usage:

#include "decimal.h"

using namespace dec;
using namespace std;

// the following declares currency variable with 2 decimal points
// initialized with integer value (can be also floating-point)
decimal<2> value(143125);

// displays: Value #1 is: 143125.00
cout << "Value #1 is: " << value << endl;

// declare precise value with digits after decimal point
decimal<2> b("0.11");

// perform calculations as with any other numeric type
value += b;

// displays: Value #2 is: 143125.11
cout << "Value #2 is: " << value << endl;

// automatic rounding performed here
value /= 1000;

// displays: Value #3 is: 143.13
cout << "Value #3 is: " << value << endl;

// integer multiplication and division can be used directly in expression
// when integer is on right side
// displays: Value: 143.13 * 2 is: 286.26
cout << "Value: " << value << " * 2 is: " << (value * 2) << endl;

// to use integer on left side you need to cast it
// displays: Value: 2 * 143.13 is: 286.26
cout << "Value: 2 * " << value << " is: " << (decimal_cast<2>(2) * value) << endl;

// to use non-integer constants in expressions you need to use decimal_cast
value = value * decimal_cast<2>("3.33") / decimal_cast<2>(333.0);

// displays: Value #4 is: 1.43
cout << "Value #4 is: " << value << endl;

// to mix decimals with different precision use decimal_cast
// it will round result automatically
decimal<6> exchangeRate(12.1234);
value = decimal_cast<2>(decimal_cast<6>(value) * exchangeRate);

// displays: Value #5 is: 17.34
cout << "Value #5 is: " << value << endl;

// supports optional strong typing, e.g.
// depending on configuration mixing precision can be forbidden
// or handled automatically
decimal<2> d2("12.03");
decimal<4> d4("123.0103");

// compiles always
d2 += d2;
d2 += decimal_cast<2>(d4);
d4 += decimal_cast<4>(d2);

#if DEC_TYPE_LEVEL >= 2
// potential precision loss
// this will fail to compile if you define DEC_TYPE_LEVEL = 0 or 1
d2 += d4;
#endif

#if DEC_TYPE_LEVEL >= 1
// (possibly unintentional) mixed precision without type casting
// this will fail to compile if you define DEC_TYPE_LEVEL = 0
d4 += d2;
#endif

// for default setup displays: mixed d2 = 417.15
cout << "mixed d2 = " << d2 << endl;
// for default setup displays: mixed d4 = 687.2303
cout << "mixed d4 = " << d4 << endl;

// supports decimal and thousand separator localization
dec::decimal_format format(',', '.');

std::string srcText   = "315499999999999.98";
std::string formatted = "315.499.999.999.999,98";
dec::decimal<2> srcDecimal(srcText);

BOOST_CHECK_EQUAL(dec::toString(srcDecimal, format), formatted);

Supported rounding modes:

  • def_round_policy: default rounding (arithmetic)
  • null_round_policy: round towards zero = truncate
  • half_down_round_policy: round half towards negative infinity
  • half_up_round_policy: round half towards positive infinity
  • half_even_round_policy: bankers' rounding, convergent rounding, statistician's rounding, Dutch rounding, Gaussian rounding
  • ceiling_round_policy: round towards positive infinity
  • floor_round_policy: round towards negative infinity
  • round_down_round_policy: round towards zero = truncate
  • round_up_round_policy: round away from zero

In order to use one of these rounding modes you need to declare your decimal variable like this:

dec::decimal<2, half_even_round_policy> a;

and it will perform required rounding automatically - for example during assignment or arithmetic operations.

Testing

In order to test the library:

cd ~/tmp
git clone https://github.com/vpiotr/decimal_for_cpp.git
cd decimal_for_cpp
mkdir _build
cd _build

# to create makefile with test support
cmake ..    
# or
cmake -DBUILD_TESTING=ON ..

# to create makefile without test support (and to avoid Boost unit testing)
cmake -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF ..

# to build or install library (only required for testing)
make all

# to execute all test runners 
make test

# to execute specific runner
./test_runner

Other information

For more examples please see \test directory.

Directory structure:

\doc     - documentation (licence etc.)
\include - headers
\test    - unit tests, Boost-based

Code documentation can be generated using Doxygen: http://www.doxygen.org/

Tested compilers:

  • VS2019 Community (MSVC++ 14.2)
  • gcc 9.3.0

Uses C++11 by default, define DEC_NO_CPP11 symbol if your compiler does not support this standard. To use custom namespace, define DEC_NAMESPACE symbol which should contain your target namespace for decimal type. For full list of configuration options see "Config section" in decimal.h file.
