I am pleased to announce the release of Rational 1.9.

Rational is a C++ class implementing rational numbers of limited size with overflow detection. Both numerator and denominator are of type 'int'.

Rational allows you to perform exact calculations and check at any time whether overflow has occurred. Rational does not throw exceptions.

Rational provides a 'parse' function that can be used to obtain values exactly representable by small fractions like '0.1', '1/3', or '355/113' from the command line.

Rational is used in combination with Arg_parser in GNU ddrescue and GNU Ocrad.
