Rmpfr: R MPFR - Multiple Precision Floating-Point Reliable

Rmpfr provides (S4 classes and methods for) arithmetic including transcendental ("special") functions for arbitrary precision floating point numbers. To this end, it interfaces to the LGPL'ed MPFR (Multiple Precision Floating-Point Reliable) Library which itself is based on the GMP (GNU Multiple Precision) Library.
