General Decimal Arithmetic

This is a decimal arithmetic package for Haskell, suitable for arbitrary-precision decimal floating point and integer calculations.

For details and the specification on which the implementation is based, see Mike Cowlishaw's General Decimal Arithmetic.

While currently usable, the implementation is still under development. Additional operations and possible API changes are planned.
