gmpy has moved to Google.


gmpy only support the basic floating point operations so it may not be
sufficient for your needs.

A couple alternatives:

1) mpmath is a pure-Python, arbitrary precision floating-point
package. It will be faster than Decimal but slower than gmpy.

2) Sage is an open-source mathematics software package. It uses Python
as it glue/scripting language. It includes support for MPFR, a
multiple-precision floating point library based on GMP.   www.sagemath.org
