# class Symbol

BigDecimal extends the native Integer class to provide the to_d method.

When you require the BigDecimal library in your application, this methodwill be available on Integer objects.

This class is the basis for the two concrete classes that hold whole numbers, Bignum and Fixnum.

### Public Class Methods

each_prime(ubound) { |prime| ... } click to toggle source

Iterates the given block over all prime numbers.

See Prime#each for more details.

# File lib/prime.rb, line 40
def Integer.each_prime(ubound, &block) # :yields: prime
Prime.each(ubound, &block)
end
from_prime_division(pd) click to toggle source

Re-composes a prime factorization and returns the product.

See Prime#int_from_prime_division for more details.

# File lib/prime.rb, line 21
def Integer.from_prime_division(pd)
Prime.int_from_prime_division(pd)
end
