Overview

BigDecimal provides arbitrary-precision floating point decimal arithmetic.

Introduction

Ruby provides built-in support for arbitrary precision integer arithmetic.

For example:

42**13 #=> 1265437718438866624512

BigDecimal provides similar support for very large or very accurate floating point numbers.

Decimal arithmetic is also useful for general calculation, because it provides the correct answers people expect–whereas normal binary floating point arithmetic often introduces subtle errors because of the conversion between base 10 and base 2.

For example, try:

sum = 0
10_000.times do
  sum = sum + 0.0001
end
print sum #=> 0.9999999999999062

and contrast with the output from:

require 'bigdecimal'

sum = BigDecimal.new("0")
10_000.times do
  sum = sum + BigDecimal.new("0.0001")
end
print sum #=> 0.1E1

Similarly:

(BigDecimal.new(“1.2”) - BigDecimal(“1.0”)) == BigDecimal(“0.2”) #=> true

(1.2 - 1.0) == 0.2 #=> false

Special features of accurate decimal arithmetic

Because BigDecimal is more accurate than normal binary floating point arithmetic, it requires some special values.

Infinity

BigDecimal sometimes needs to return infinity, for example if you divide a value by zero.

BigDecimal.new(“1.0”) / BigDecimal.new(“0.0”) #=> Infinity BigDecimal.new(“-1.0”) / BigDecimal.new(“0.0”) #=> -Infinity

You can represent infinite numbers to BigDecimal using the strings 'Infinity', '+Infinity' and '-Infinity' (case-sensitive)

Not a Number

When a computation results in an undefined value, the special value NaN (for 'not a number') is returned.

Example:

BigDecimal.new(“0.0”) / BigDecimal.new(“0.0”) #=> NaN

You can also create undefined values.

NaN is never considered to be the same as any other value, even NaN itself:

n = BigDecimal.new('NaN') n == 0.0 #=> false n == n #=> false

Positive and negative zero

If a computation results in a value which is too small to be represented as a BigDecimal within the currently specified limits of precision, zero must be returned.

If the value which is too small to be represented is negative, a BigDecimal value of negative zero is returned.

BigDecimal.new(“1.0”) / BigDecimal.new(“-Infinity”) #=> -0.0

If the value is positive, a value of positive zero is returned.

BigDecimal.new(“1.0”) / BigDecimal.new(“Infinity”) #=> 0.0

(See BigDecimal.mode for how to specify limits of precision.)

Note that -0.0 and 0.0 are considered to be the same for the purposes of comparison.

Note also that in mathematics, there is no particular concept of negative or positive zero; true mathematical zero has no sign.

BASE =

Base value used in internal calculations. On a 32 bit system, BASE is 10000, indicating that calculation is done in groups of 4 digits. (If it were larger, BASE**2 wouldn't fit in 32 bits, so you couldn't guarantee that two groups could always be multiplied together without overflow.)

INT2FIX((SIGNED_VALUE)VpBaseVal())
EXCEPTION_ALL =

Determines whether overflow, underflow or zero divide result in an exception being thrown. See BigDecimal.mode.

0xff
EXCEPTION_NaN =

Determines what happens when the result of a computation is not a number (NaN). See BigDecimal.mode.

Constructor Details

#new(initial, digits) ⇒ Object

Create a new BigDecimal object.

initial

The initial value, as an Integer, a Float, a Rational, a BigDecimal, or a String.

If it is a String, spaces are ignored and unrecognized characters terminate the value.

digits

The number of significant digits, as a Fixnum. If omitted or 0, the number of significant digits is determined from the initial value.

The actual number of significant digits used in computation is usually larger than the specified number.

Exceptions

TypeError

If the initial type is neither Fixnum, Bignum, Float, Rational, nor BigDecimal, this exception is raised.

TypeError

If the digits is not a Fixnum, this exception is raised.

ArgumentError

If initial is a Float, and the digits is larger than Float::DIG + 1, this exception is raised.

ArgumentError

If the initial is a Float or Rational, and the digits value is omitted, this exception is raised.

.limit(*args) ⇒ Object

BigDecimal.limit(digits)

Limit the number of significant digits in newly created BigDecimal numbers to the specified value. Rounding is performed as necessary, as specified by BigDecimal.mode.

A limit of 0, the default, means no upper limit.

The limit specified by this method takes less priority over any limit specified to instance methods such as ceil, floor, truncate, or round.

.mode(*args) ⇒ Object

BigDecimal.mode(mode, value)

Controls handling of arithmetic exceptions and rounding. If no value is supplied, the current value is returned.

Six values of the mode parameter control the handling of arithmetic exceptions:

BigDecimal::EXCEPTION_NaN BigDecimal::EXCEPTION_INFINITY BigDecimal::EXCEPTION_UNDERFLOW BigDecimal::EXCEPTION_OVERFLOW BigDecimal::EXCEPTION_ZERODIVIDE BigDecimal::EXCEPTION_ALL

For each mode parameter above, if the value set is false, computation continues after an arithmetic exception of the appropriate type. When computation continues, results are as follows:

EXCEPTION_NaN

NaN

EXCEPTION_INFINITY

+Infinity or -Infinity

EXCEPTION_UNDERFLOW

0

EXCEPTION_OVERFLOW

+Infinity or -Infinity

EXCEPTION_ZERODIVIDE

+Infinity or -Infinity

One value of the mode parameter controls the rounding of numeric values: BigDecimal::ROUND_MODE. The values it can take are:

ROUND_UP, :up

round away from zero

ROUND_DOWN, :down, :truncate

round towards zero (truncate)

ROUND_HALF_UP, :half_up, :default

round towards the nearest neighbor, unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round away from zero. (default)

ROUND_HALF_DOWN, :half_down

round towards the nearest neighbor, unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round towards zero.

ROUND_HALF_EVEN, :half_even, :banker

round towards the nearest neighbor, unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round towards the even neighbor (Banker's rounding)

ROUND_CEILING, :ceiling, :ceil

round towards positive infinity (ceil)

ROUND_FLOOR, :floor

round towards negative infinity (floor)

a - b -> bigdecimal

Subtract the specified value.

e.g.

c = a - b

The precision of the result value depends on the type of b.

If b is a Float, the precision of the result is Float::DIG+1.

If b is a BigDecimal, the precision of the result is b's precision of internal representation from platform. So, it's return value is platform dependent.

#coerce(other) ⇒ Object

The coerce method provides support for Ruby type coercion. It is not enabled by default.

This means that binary operations like + * / or - can often be performed on a BigDecimal and an object of another type, if the other object can be coerced into a BigDecimal value.

e.g.

a = BigDecimal.new("1.0")
b = a / 2.0 #=> 0.5

Note that coercing a String to a BigDecimal is not supported by default; it requires a special compile-time option when building Ruby.

#round(*args) ⇒ Object

round(n, mode)

Round to the nearest integer (by default), returning the result as a BigDecimal.

BigDecimal('3.14159').round #=> 3 BigDecimal('8.7').round #=> 9 BigDecimal('-9.9').round #=> -10

If n is specified and positive, the fractional part of the result has no more than that many digits.

If n is specified and negative, at least that many digits to the left of the decimal point will be 0 in the result.

BigDecimal('3.14159').round(3) #=> 3.142 BigDecimal('13345.234').round(-2) #=> 13300.0

The value of the optional mode argument can be used to determine how rounding is performed; see BigDecimal.mode.

Returns the sign of the value.

Returns a positive value if > 0, a negative value if < 0, and a zero if == 0.

The specific value returned indicates the type and sign of the BigDecimal, as follows:

BigDecimal::SIGN_NaN

value is Not a Number

BigDecimal::SIGN_POSITIVE_ZERO

value is +0

BigDecimal::SIGN_NEGATIVE_ZERO

value is -0

BigDecimal::SIGN_POSITIVE_INFINITE

value is +Infinity

BigDecimal::SIGN_NEGATIVE_INFINITE

value is -Infinity

BigDecimal::SIGN_POSITIVE_FINITE

value is positive

BigDecimal::SIGN_NEGATIVE_FINITE

value is negative

#splitObject

Splits a BigDecimal number into four parts, returned as an array of values.

The first value represents the sign of the BigDecimal, and is -1 or 1, or 0 if the BigDecimal is Not a Number.

The second value is a string representing the significant digits of the BigDecimal, with no leading zeros.

The third value is the base used for arithmetic (currently always 10) as an Integer.

The fourth value is an Integer exponent.

If the BigDecimal can be represented as 0.xxxxxx*10**n, then xxxxxx is the string of significant digits with no leading zeros, and n is the exponent.

From these values, you can translate a BigDecimal to a float as follows:

sign, significant_digits, base, exponent = a.split
f = sign * "0.#{significant_digits}".to_f * (base ** exponent)

(Note that the to_f method is provided as a more convenient way to translate a BigDecimal to a Float.)

#to_s(*args) ⇒ Object

to_s(s)

Converts the value to a string.

The default format looks like 0.xxxxEnn.

The optional parameter s consists of either an integer; or an optional '+' or ' ', followed by an optional number, followed by an optional 'E' or 'F'.

If there is a '+' at the start of s, positive values are returned with a leading '+'.

A space at the start of s returns positive values with a leading space.

If s contains a number, a space is inserted after each group of that many fractional digits.

If s ends with an 'E', engineering notation (0.xxxxEnn) is used.

If s ends with an 'F', conventional floating point notation is used.

Examples:

BigDecimal.new('-123.45678901234567890').to_s('5F')
  #=> '-123.45678 90123 45678 9'

BigDecimal.new('123.45678901234567890').to_s('+8F')
  #=> '+123.45678901 23456789'

BigDecimal.new('123.45678901234567890').to_s(' F')
  #=> ' 123.4567890123456789'
