Who’s using bors?

This month’s featured user is rust-num, the numerics library for Rust.

This project holds maintainership over several “advanced numerics” libraries (Rust has basics fixed-length integer and floating point math, equal to C, built-in). Here’s some of their libraries:

  • num-bigint: math with numbers bigger than 128 bits
  • num-complex: math with an imaginary component
  • num-integer: extensions for integers, including the built-in fixed-length integers and num-bigint
    • a trait (similar to interfaces and concepts in other languages) for integers, allowing generic code that supports any type of integer
    • additional integer functions like nth_root
  • num-iter: an enhanced version of Range
  • num-rational: a fraction library
  • num-traits: generic traits for all numbers
