in thread Is there a Matrix module that supports BigFloat?

Can you factor out a small number, say 1e-6 or something?

No, there aren't any small numbers. They are all very big with a large number of significant digits.

I already know about Matlab (and the version 4.0? compatible one called GNU Octave) but I don't want to shell out cash for something that I might only use a few times besides if I have to I will write a program that will solve the set of simultaneous equations using Math::BigFloat.

Also, what are you doing with the matrices?

Solving a set of simultaneous equations with very large coefficients that have a large number of significant digits.
