**Defined in namespace Smalltalk****Superclass: Number****Category: Language-Data types**My instances represent floating point numbers that have arbitrary precision. Besides the standard numerical operations, they provide transcendental operations too. They implement IEEE-754 correctly if the hardware supports it.
