When implementing algorithms in hardware, it is common to reduce the
accuracy of the representation of numbers to a smaller number of bits.
This allows much lower complexity in the hardware, at the cost of
accuracy and potential overflow problems. Such representations are
known as fixed point.
This package supplies a fixed point type that allows Octave, a
numerical computational software, to model the effects of such a
reduction in accuracy of the representation of numbers.  The major
advantage of this package is that with correctly written Octave
scripts, the same code can be used to test both fixed and floating
point representations of numbers.
This Octave add-on package is part of the Octave-Forge project.
