# README

PHP bcmath as a static class, with several enhancements.

## Installation

Use Composer:

composer require danhunsaker/bcmath

## Usage

Usage is nearly identical to the bcmath extension functions. The main
difference is that the `bc`

prefix is replaced by the `Danhunsaker\BC`

class
name (which you can easily alias in your project(s) via `use Danhunsaker\BC`

).

In other words:

`bcadd()`

becomes`BC::add()`

`bccomp()`

becomes`BC::comp()`

`bcdiv()`

becomes`BC::div()`

`bcmod()`

becomes`BC::mod()`

`bcmul()`

becomes`BC::mul()`

`bcpow()`

becomes`BC::pow()`

`bcpowmod()`

becomes`BC::powmod()`

`bcscale()`

becomes`BC::scale()`

`bcsqrt()`

becomes`BC::sqrt()`

`bcsub()`

becomes`BC::sub()`

There are also some additional convenience methods available, that aren't present in the extension:

`BC::epow()`

raises*e*to the argument's power.`BC::fact()`

calculates the factorial of the argument.`BC::intval()`

truncates the fractional portion of the argument, if any.`BC::ln()`

gives the natural logarithm of the argument.`BC::log()`

gives the base 10 logarithm of the argument (uses ln $val/ln 10).`BC::max()`

returns the largest value in an array (the first argument).`BC::min()`

returns the smallest value in an array (the first argument).`BC::modfrac()`

behaves exactly like`BC::mod()`

, except it will return the fractional part of any remainder as well as the integer part.`BC::powfrac()`

supports fractional exponents, allowing roots other than the square to be calculated.`BC::root()`

is a complement to`BC::powfrac()`

, and is in fact just a convenience wrapper for it.`BC::round()`

rounds a value to a given scale.

### Expression Parser

There's also `BC::parse()`

, which lets you write your calculations as
expressions instead of method calls. It doesn't (yet) support *everything*
available via method calls, but this is planned for a later release. For the
moment, here's a list of which ones *are* supported, and how to specify each in
your expressions:

`BC::add(a, b)`

=>`'a + b'`

`BC::div(a, b)`

=>`'a / b'`

`BC::div(a, b, 0)`

=>`'a \ b'`

`BC::mod(a, b)`

=>`'a % b'`

`BC::modfrac(a, b)`

=>`'a %% b'`

`BC::mul(BC::div(a, b, 0), b)`

=>`'a \* b'`

`BC::sub(a, BC::mod(a, b))`

=>`'a -% b'`

`BC::mul(a, b)`

=>`'a * b'`

`BC::pow(a, b)`

=>`'a ** b'`

`BC::powfrac(a, b)`

=>`'a ^ b'`

`BC::sub(a, b)`

=>`'a - b'`

There are also some logical expressions available, all of which will return a boolean value (true/false) instead of a number:

`BC::comp(a, b) == 0`

=>`'a = b'`

or`'a == b'`

`BC::comp(a, b) == 1`

=>`'a > b'`

`BC::comp(a, b) == -1`

=>`'a < b'`

`BC::comp(a, b) >= 0`

=>`'a >= b'`

`BC::comp(a, b) <= 0`

=>`'a <= b'`

`BC::comp(a, b) != 0`

=>`'a != b'`

or`'a <> b'`

`a and b`

=>`'a & b'`

or`'a && b'`

`a or b`

=>`'a | b'`

or`'a || b'`

`a xor b`

=>`'a ~ b'`

or`'a ~~ b'`

The expression parser recognizes parentheses, so you can use those to group your subexpressions as needed. It also supports variables:

BC::parse('{m} * {x} + {b}', ['m' => 0.5, 'x' => 5, 'b' => 0]);

Need to specify a scale for your expression? No problem, just pass it along in the third parameter:

BC::parse('{m} * {x} + {b}', ['m' => 0.5, 'x' => 5, 'b' => 0], 18);

You can, of course, skip the variable list by passing `null`

as the second
argument:

BC::parse('{m} * {x} + {b}', null, 18); // Any unrecognized variables are assumed to be zero, // so the above is the same as: BC::parse('0 * 0 + 0', null, 18);
