[New-bugs-announce] [issue22458] Add fractions benchmark
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Stefan Behnel:
Fractions are great for all sorts of exact computations (including money/currency calculations), but are quite slow due to the need for normalisation at instantiation time.
I adapted the existing telco benchmark to use Fraction instead of Decimal to make this problem more visible. One change I made was to take the data reading out of the measured loop. I/O is not part of what the benchmark should measure.
Please consider adding it to the benchmark suite.
