Pd in double precision 0.43.1 (Alpha release) Released 2011-10-27
double-precision-ready variant of vanilla Pd

Project Description

Project resources
The pd-double project has a background of untold history, where Pd core code and externals were stepwise rewritten to make them ready for compilation in double precision. September 2011, code for a true double precision vanilla Pd was published. A git repository was created to further develop this code, and use it as a framework to make external libraries ready for double precision as well. Even though pd-double is a fork of Pure Data, the API did not and will not change, apart from a compile-time precision option. Hopefully, pd-double will fuse with Pure Data as we know it in a not too far future, after all has been tested and bugfixed.

To see what it is about, and how the current project started, see this page with illustrated examples: www.katjaas.nl/doubleprecision/doubleprecision.html.

The git repository is here: https://github.com/pd-projects/pd-double. Use it to build a double precision vanilla Pd on your own platform.

Making Pd-extended double-ready is of course a community project. Therefore, a wiki on this topic is started to keep track of development, testing and information: http://puredata.info/dev/pd-double.


This project page collects pd-double binary builds and test patches.
