|Description:||Fast replacement for decimal module (2.3-1)|
The cdecimal package is a fast drop-in replacement for the decimal module in Python's standard library. Both modules provide complete implementations of Mike Cowlishaw/IBM's General Decimal Arithmetic Specification. Both cdecimal and the underlying library - libmpdec - are extremely well tested. libmpdec is one of the few open source projects with 100% code coverage. cdecimal is rigorously tested against decimal.py. Typical performance gains are between 30x for I/O heavy benchmarks and 80x for numerical programs. In a database benchmark, cdecimal exhibits a speedup of 12x over decimal.py.
