Changes for version 0.08

  • Change tack to concentrate on simply checking that the Math::NV functions work correctly, and don't worry about trying to uncover discrepancies between respective values assigned by perl and C. (This calls for a major change of the test suite, and a small change to the documentation.)
  • Remove Data::Float dependency.
  • Remove mant2binary() and mant_str2binary(). (They were incorrect, and unnecessary.)


  • Math::NV - assign to NV using C's strtod/strtold/strtoflt128 (as appropriate)
