Bernd Eckenfels commented on TEXT-57:

Does that mean you want to depend on commons-math or commons-complex?

> "Commons Math" contains formatting classes whose purpose are to beautify the printout
of such objects as "complex number" and "matrix" instances.
> I suggest that such functionality would be a better fit for "Commons Text".
> Rationale is that it is an endeavour unto itself rather than something which other components
can easily implement themselves, aside from their "core business".
> As an example, in "Commons Math", there was an issue in that fixed precision was maintained
in numbers close to 0, leading to meaningless error messages.
