+This package is an two-layer interface layer over the GNU MPFR 
+(see  http://www.mpfr.org/) arbitrary precision computing library.
+The upper layer is made of .m files, implementing the mp class, and
+overloading basic operations. The lower layer is a mere interface to 
+various entry points in the mpfr lib.
+
+The original author is Ben Barrowes, he distributed his code via
+sourceforge (http://mptoolbox.sourceforge.net/)  and 
+MatLab central (http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/6446-multiple-precision-toolbox-for-matlab)
+
+Although this code is distributed under the BSD license, accessing
+code from MatLab central means you agree not to use it on another
+platform than MatLab. I personally contacted Mr Barrowes, and he sent
+me a file, mptoolbox_1.2.tar.gz, on June, 25th, 2O13. He also agreed
+to have his code and further works re-licensed under the GNU GPL v3.0.
+
+I had to tweak a few files in order to have this toolbox running under Octave.
+After a short discussions with Octave-forge maintainers, this package became
+the multi-precision toolbox (https://sourceforge.net/p/octave/multi-precision)
+
+The intent is to keep it compatible both with Octave and MatLab. A few rough
+edges and bugs have been cleaned, for instance 
+x = mp(Inf);
+y = x + 2
+now gives the expected result. Further functions will be added, and
+development will continues as time permits...
