8 digit number precision wanted

Post by sedat.de »


Currently, I can choose between 0 and 6 digits precision for numbers. I would like to have this extended to 7 and 8 digits precision.

Is there a special reason, why 6 was chooses for the highest precision? As far as I can see, Cyclos arithmetic is based on BigDecimal library with looks like it suppports unlimted precision. Would t hard to extend Cyclos3.7 and/or Cyclos4 to at least 8 digits of precision.

Background is, that we want to implement a system based on gramms of gold, and we would like to account 1 ounce of gold, which is defined as 28,3495231 gramm, which can not be displayed with only 6 digits of precision.

Best regards
