Developer Bob Delaney has released Extended Plugin 1.0 for REALbasic 5, the software development environment from Real Software.
The plugin adds three new data types: ExtInteger (the type ZZ of Victor Shoup’s multi-precision library, NTL), ExtFloat (the type RR of NTL), and ExtComplex. ExtComplex doesn’t exist in NTL; Delaney made it from two ExtFloats. Extended Plugin lets you construct programs that can handle the three new data types much like doubles and integers are handled. It’s freeware and is now available for download.
