struct BigDecimal

Overview

A BigDecimal can represent arbitrarily large precision decimals.

It is internally represented by a pair of BigInt and UInt64: value and scale. Value contains the actual value, and scale tells the decimal point place. E.g. when value is 1234 and scale 2, the result is 12.34.

The general idea and some of the arithmetic algorithms were adapted from the MIT/APACHE-licensed bigdecimal-rs.

Constructor Detail

def self.new(value : BigInt, scale : UInt64) #

Creates a new BigDecimal from BigInt value and UInt64 scale, which matches the internal representation.


[View source]
def self.new(num : Float) #

Creates a new BigDecimal from Float.

NOTE Floats are fundamentally less precise than BigDecimals, which makes initialization from them risky.


[View source]
def self.new(num : BigRational) #

Creates a new BigDecimal from BigRational.

NOTE BigRational are fundamentally more precise than BigDecimals, which makes initialization from them risky.


[View source]
def self.new(num : BigDecimal) #

Returns num. Useful for generic code that does T.new(...) with T being a Number.


[View source]
def self.new(num : Int = 0, scale : Int = 0) #

Creates a new BigDecimal from Int.


[View source]
def self.new(str : String) #

Creates a new BigDecimal from a String.

Allows only valid number strings with an optional negative sign.

def <=>(other : BigDecimal) : Int32 #
Description copied from module Comparable(BigDecimal)

The comparison operator. Returns 0 if the two objects are equal, a negative number if this object is considered less than other, a positive number if this object is considered greter than other, or nil if the two objects are not comparable.

Subclasses define this method to provide class-specific ordering.

The comparison operator is usually used to sort values:

# Sort in a descending way:
[3, 1, 2].sort { |x, y| y <=> x } # => [3, 2, 1]

# Sort in an ascending way:
[3, 1, 2].sort { |x, y| x <=> y } # => [1, 2, 3]

[View source]
def <=>(other : Int | Float | BigRational) #

[View source]
def ==(other : BigDecimal) : Bool #
Description copied from module Comparable(BigDecimal)

Compares this object to other based on the receiver’s #<=> method, returning true if it returns 0.

Also returns true if this and other are the same object.

def ceil : BigDecimal #

[View source]

[View source]
def div(other : BigDecimal, max_div_iterations = DEFAULT_MAX_DIV_ITERATIONS) : BigDecimal #

Divides self with another BigDecimal, with a optionally configurable max_div_iterations, which defines a maximum number of iterations in case the division is not exact.

BigDecimal.new(1).div(BigDecimal.new(2))    # => BigDecimal(@value=5, @scale=2)
BigDecimal.new(1).div(BigDecimal.new(3), 5) # => BigDecimal(@value=33333, @scale=5)

[View source]
def floor : BigDecimal #

[View source]
def hash(hasher) #
Description copied from class Object

Appends this object's value to hasher, and returns the modified hasher.

Usually the macro def_hash can be used to generate this method. Otherwise, invoke #hash(hasher) on each object's instance variables to accumulate the result:

def hash(hasher)
  hasher = @some_ivar.hash(hasher)
  hasher = @some_other_ivar.hash(hasher)
  hasher
end
