I need quadruple precision in matlab,
and the calculations with which I am dealing are not suitable for symbolic arithmetic (the expressions are so complex that merely evaluating them results in truncation errors leading to my answers being less accurate than my numerical algorithm .. this was tested in maple with 1000 digits of precision).

If there's not a package that allows me to deal with quadruple precision .. Matlab should really incorporate one in its next version.
