#8692 closed Bugs (fixed)

setting mpfr precision uses wrong precision and trashes value

Reported by: claude@… Owned by: johnmaddock
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: multiprecision
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:

Description Two bugs in boost/multiprecision/mpfr.hpp:920-923

  1. set_prec trashes the value, should use prec_round
  2. precision is converted from bits to digits10, should be from digits10 to bits
void precision(unsigned digits10) BOOST_NOEXCEPT
  mpfr_set_prec(this->m_data, multiprecision::detail::digits2_2_10((digits10)));

should be more like

void precision(unsigned digits10) BOOST_NOEXCEPT
  mpfr_prec_round(this->m_data, multiprecision::detail::digits10_2_2((digits10)), GMP_RNDN);
