The scientific package

[ Tags: bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

A Scientific number is an arbitrary-precision floating-point number represented using scientific notation.

A scientific number with coefficient c and base10Exponent e corresponds to the Fractional number: fromInteger c * 10 ^^ e

Its primary use-case is to serve as the target of parsing floating point numbers. Since the textual representation of floating point numbers use scientific notation they can be efficiently parsed to a Scientific number.
