Source:  xint.dtx (v1.1a 2014/11/07, doc of 2015/03/07)
Author:  Jean-Francois Burnol
Info:    Expandable operations on big integers, decimals, fractions

This README is also available as README.pdf and README.html.

Change log is in CHANGES.pdf and CHANGES.html.


With LaTeX

\usepackage{xint}       % expandable arithmetic with big integers
\usepackage{xintfrac}   % decimal numbers, fractions, floats
\usepackage{xintexpr}   % expressions with infix operators

Further packages: xintbinhex, xintgcd, xintseries and xintcfrac. All dependencies are handled automatically. For example xintexpr automatically loads xintfrac which itself loads xint. Package xintcore is the subset of xint providing only the five operations on big integers: \xintiiAdd, \xintiiMul, ... There is also xinttools which is a separate package providing, among others, expandable and non-expandable loops such as \xintFor.

With TeX

One does for example:

\input xintexpr.sty\relax

Again, all dependencies are handled automatically. The packages may be loaded in any catcode context such that letters, digits, \ and % have their standard catcodes.

xintcore.sty and xinttools.sty both import xintkernel.sty which has the catcode handler and package identifier and defines a few utilities such as \oodef or \xint_dothis/\xint_orthat.


Method A: using the package manager of your TeX distribution

xint is included in TeXLive (hence also MacTeX) and MikTeX.

There can be a few days of delay between apparition of a new version on CTAN and availability via the distribution package manager.

Method B: manual installation using and unzip

Assumes a GNU/Linux-like system (or Mac OS X).

  1. obtain from CTAN:

  2. cd to the download repertory and issue:

    unzip -d <TEXMF>

    where <TEXMF> is a suitable TDS-compliant destination repertory. For example, with TeXLive:

Method C: manual installation using Makefile and xint.dtx

The Makefile automatizes rebuilding from xint.dtx all documentation files as well as It is for GNU/Linux-like (inc. Mac OS X) systems, with a teTeX like installation such as TeXLive. Furthermore the Pandoc software is required.

  1. obtain xint.dtx and Makefile from

  2. put them in an otherwise empty working repertory, run make or equivalently make help for further instructions.

Method D: installation starting with only xint.dtx

Run "tex xint.dtx" or "etex xint.dtx" to extract from xint.dtx all packages as well as these files:
the current README with Markdown formatting.
the changes across successive releases.

used to generate xint.pdf via "latex xint.tex" (thrice) then "dvipdfmx xint.dvi". For successful compilation, packages newtxtt, newtxmath, etoc, mathastext are needed. Inclusion of the source code is off by default, but the toggle can be set in xint.tex.

It is also possible to compile xint.tex with pdflatex.

A third option is to generate xint.pdf via pdflatex xint.dtx. Source code is then included by default.
this is for UNIX-like systems. Note: this file is only produced with "etex xint.dtx", not with "tex xint.dtx". Rename it to Makefile and run make on the command line for further help. and
these are scripts (for UNIX-like systems) which can be used to convert the and to HTML and PDF formats. They require Pandoc.

Finishing the installation in a TDS hierarchy:

Depending on the destination, it may then be necessary to refresh a filename database.
