It includes functions for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and comparison/equals. All functions handle any length of argument. Most have options that handle signed arguments. The functions are optimized for things like different-length arguments.

Some performance benchmarks on my five-year-old laptop:

Add two 10,000 digit numbers: 0.005 seconds.

Add two 10,000 digit numbers: 0.004 seconds.

Multiply two 10,000 digit numbers: 3.1 seconds.

Divide a 10,000 digit number by a 5,000 digit number: 9.4 seconds -- needs some optimization.

For division in particular, I wrote a faster algorithm that is included, but there is a bug in the final steps that I haven't figured out yet. bigDivFlawed is about 40% faster than bigDiv, but can bork the last few digits of the quotient. Included in case anyone sees the logic error.

If anyone has any suggestions, let me know here, or file bug reports on github, or code and submit a pull request.

A list of the functions included:

- function bigAdd -- returns the sum
- function bigAddSigned -- handles positive and negative arguments
- function bigSubtract -- returns the difference
- function bigSubtractSigned -- handles positive and negative arguments
- function bigTimes -- returns the product
- function bigTimesSigned -- handles positive and negative arguments
- function bigDiv -- returns (the integer quotient),(the remainder)
- function bigDivSigned -- handles positive and negative arguments
- function bigishDiv -- Handles any length dividend; divisor must be a valid LC number (< 16 digits)
- function bigDivFlawed -- About 40% faster than bigDiv, but can bork the last few digits of the quotient. Included in case anyone sees the logic error.
- function bigCompare -- Applies >,<,=,<=,>= to any length arguments
- function stripLeadingZeros -- returns any string without whatever leading zeros it contains
