uuh well that's nice.
But I guess it's not possible to implement this in the OS itself so it's always used...? :/
I really don't know how the OS does math internally. Modding individual functions (add, sub etc) to use more decimals won't work becouse the OS would still use the 9 byte floats, which have 10(iirc) significant figs.

Is this in Axe?
Looks neat. You should post how you do the math.
Yep, this is in axe. I plan to make this open source once i have more stuff implemented ;)

Nice! In what language are you writing this? And do you have an indication of the speed?
regarding trig, you can find various articles on the internet, mostly they're an approximation with exponents (If you want to derive them
yourself, you'll need to use taylor polynomals ;)).
For exponents you'll only need to impelemnt ln(x) and e^(x), since you can rewrite any log(x, y) and x^y to a form using ln and e^(x). Good luck ;)
I don't have addition/division, but my guess is that it will be fine. Basically, it will always take longer for you to type the number then for the program to compute :3
Also, why would i need ln(x) if its just log(x)/log(e) :P ? As a start, i will only have base 10 log. BTW, how do i rewrite x^y as e^(x) ???

Edit: part of this post was accidentally deleted by a mod in an accident, i tried to restore it as best i could, but it might not be 100% perfect ;)
