final class BigDecimal(val bigDecimal: BigDecimal, val mc: MathContext) extends ScalaNumber,

BigDecimal represents decimal floating-point numbers of arbitrary precision. By default, the precision approximately matches that of IEEE 128-bit floating point numbers (34 decimal digits, HALF_EVEN rounding mode). Within the range of IEEE binary128 numbers, BigDecimal will agree with BigInt for both equality and hash codes (and will agree with primitive types as well). Beyond that range--numbers with more than 4934 digits when written out in full--the hashCode of BigInt and BigDecimal is allowed to diverge due to difficulty in efficiently computing both the decimal representation in BigDecimal and the binary representation in BigInt.

When creating a BigDecimal from a Double or Float, care must be taken as the binary fraction representation of Double and Float does not easily convert into a decimal representation. Three explicit schemes are available for conversion. BigDecimal.decimal will convert the floating-point number to a decimal text representation, and build a BigDecimal based on that. BigDecimal.binary will expand the binary fraction to the requested or default precision. BigDecimal.exact will expand the binary fraction to the full number of digits, thus producing the exact decimal value corresponding to the binary fraction of that floating-point number. BigDecimal equality matches the decimal expansion of Double: BigDecimal.decimal(0.1) == 0.1. Note that since 0.1f != 0.1, the same is not true for Float. Instead, 0.1f == BigDecimal.decimal((0.1f).toDouble).

To test whether a BigDecimal number can be converted to a Double or Float and then back without loss of information by using one of these methods, test with isDecimalDouble, isBinaryDouble, or isExactDouble or the corresponding Float versions. Note that BigInt's isValidDouble will agree with isExactDouble, not the isDecimalDouble used by default.

BigDecimal uses the decimal representation of binary floating-point numbers to determine equality and hash codes. This yields different answers than conversion between Long and Double values, where the exact form is used. As always, since floating-point is a lossy representation, it is advisable to take care when assuming identity will be maintained across multiple conversions.

BigDecimal maintains a MathContext that determines the rounding that is applied to certain calculations. In most cases, the value of the BigDecimal is also rounded to the precision specified by the MathContext. To create a BigDecimal with a different precision than its MathContext, use new BigDecimal(new java.math.BigDecimal(...), mc). Rounding will be applied on those mathematical operations that can dramatically change the number of digits in a full representation, namely multiplication, division, and powers. The left-hand argument's MathContext always determines the degree of rounding, if any, and is the one propagated through arithmetic operations that do not apply rounding themselves.

override def hashCode(): Int

Returns the hash code for this BigDecimal.

Returns the hash code for this BigDecimal. Note that this does not merely use the underlying java object's hashCode because we compare BigDecimals with compareTo which deems 2 == 2.00, whereas in java these are unequal with unequal hashCodes. These hash codes agree with BigInt for whole numbers up ~4934 digits (the range of IEEE 128 bit floating point). Beyond this, hash codes will disagree; this prevents the explicit representation of the BigInt form for BigDecimal values with large exponents.

Should only be called after all known non-primitive types have been excluded.

Should only be called after all known non-primitive types have been excluded. This method won't dispatch anywhere else after checking against the primitives to avoid infinite recursion between equals and this on unknown "Number" variants.

Additionally, this should only be called if the numeric type is happy to be converted to Long, Float, and Double. If for instance a BigInt much larger than the Long range is sent here, it will claim equality with whatever Long is left in its lower 64 bits. Or a BigDecimal with more precision than Double can hold: same thing. There's no way given the interface available here to prevent this error.
