Subject: [Caml-list] Num library
Hello Caml List,

I'm considering using the Num library (from the standard distribution) for
implementing numbers in an interpreter. Questions:

- Is there any benchmark available ?  What is the overhead when dealing
  with "small" integers ?

- How does the library compare with other large/rational numbers
  implementations ?

- The manual mentions two special elements 1/0 and 0/0; it seems
  that -1/0 is also available. Is it a bug in the manual or the
  implementation ?
