It is implemented under the hood with GMP.

NOTE To use BigFloat, you must explicitly import it with require "big"

def <=>(other : BigFloat) #
Description copied from module Comparable(Float)

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 greater 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]

def round_away : self #

Rounds towards the nearest integer. If both neighboring integers are equidistant, rounds towards the even neighbor (Banker's rounding).

def to_s(io : IO) : Nil #
Description copied from class Object

Prints a nicely readable and concise string representation of this object, typically intended for users, to io.

This method is called when an object is interpolated in a string literal:

"foo #{bar} baz" # calls bar.to_io with the builder for this string

IO#<< calls this method to append an object to itself:

io << bar # calls bar.to_s(io)

Thus implementations must not interpolate self in a string literal or call io << self which both would lead to an endless loop.

Also see #inspect(IO).
