In section 10.1 of the 4.2.4 manual, the above is given as an example of
how to print an mpf number. What I don't understand is how that works
given that 'n' is either zero or undefined (depending on C or compiler).
It is assumed that both f and n is set to something useful.
How do I get gmp_printf (or, in my case, gmp_sprintf) to output
everything that's in an mpf_t without rounding.
As far as I know, gmp_*printf does not provide any such feature, but I
am too lazy to check the manual right now.
If I am right, you need to do the logarithm fraction, and compute the
value of n from the number of bits you asked for when initializing f.
log(2)/log(10) = 0.3010299957...
