#8798 closed Bugs (fixed)

pow(cpp_dec_float_type(0), cpp_dec_float_type(n)) != 0 for n > 1

Reported by: Jan Bouwer <JBouwer@…> Owned by: John Maddock
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: multiprecision
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:

Description

The overload of 'pow' taking both arguments of number<cpp_dec_float<...>> gives a wrong answer when the base == 0 and the exponent > 1.

eg.

using T = cpp_dec_float_50;
assert( pow(T(0), T(2)) == 0 ); // Failure

Tested against svn #84980 with clang (Apple LLVM version 4.2 (clang-425.0.28) (based on LLVM 3.2svn)) target: x86_64-apple-darwin12.4.0 with: -std=c++11 -stdlib=libc++
