    Jinac Documentation


    Jinac is an addon to node.js which enables arbitrarily precise rational numbers, and ways of manipulating them without losing precision.

    var RationalNumber = require('jinac').RationalNumber;
    var oneHalf = new RationalNumber('1/2');
    var twoThirds = new RationalNumber('2/3');
    var result = oneHalf.add(twoThirds);
    console.log("The result is:");
    console.log(result.numerator + '/' + result.denominator); // '7/6'
    

    This project was started in response to the growing need for high-performance grading of mathematics in web-based educational software. The RationalNumber class provided by jinac can handle really, really big numbers, and can perform operations on them very quickly.

    For example, this module can perform

    factorial(45000)
    

    in about a quarter of a second.

    Dependencies:

    CLN - Class Library for Numbers: You must have this package installed on your system in order to use jinac.

    Examples

    Constructing

    • Constructing a new rational number:

        var RationalNumber = require('jinac').RationalNumber;
        var rat = new RationalNumber();
        console.log("The new rational number looks like:");
        console.log(rat); // { denominator: '1', numerator: '0' }
      
    • Constructing a new rational number from a string:

        var RationalNumber = require('jinac').RationalNumber;
        var rat1 = new RationalNumber('-3/4');
        var rat2 = new RationalNumber('5');
        var rat3 = new RationalNumber('0.5'); // Throws exception
        var rat4 = new RationalNumber('3/-4'); // Throws exception
      
    • Auto-simplification:

        var RationalNumber = require('jinac').RationalNumber;
        var rat = new RationalNumber('8/10');
        console.log("The simplified rational number looks like:");
        console.log(rat); // { denominator : '5', numerator : '4' }
