Currency package helps you do currency computations accurately, by avoiding peddling. The Currency struct holds all the data required to define a currency.

type Currency struct {
// Code represents the international currency code
Code string
// Symbol is the respective currency symbol
Symbol string
// Main represents the main value of the currency
Main int
// Fractional represents the fractional/sub unit of the currency
Fractional uint
// FUName is the name of the fractional/sub unit of the currency. e.g. paise
FUName string
// FUShare represents the no.of fractional/sub units that make up 1 main unit. e.g. ₹1 = 100 paise
// Number of fractional units that make up 1 unit of the main value
FUShare uint
}

New(main int, fractional int, code, symbol string, funame string, fushare uint)

New returns a pointer of currency instance created based on the values provided

main - Main/Super unit of the currency
fractional - Subunit/fractional unit of the currency
code - is the currency code according to [ISO 4217 specification](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_4217)
symbol - Unicode symbol of the currency
funame - Name of the fractional/sub unit
fushare - Number of fractional/sub units that make up 1 unit of the main/super unit

IMPORTANT! Fractional unit can be negative only when the main value is 0. If the main value is not 0, fractional unit's negative sign is ignored.

Parsers & convenience methods

1. NewFractional(fractional int, symbol string, fulabel string, fushare uint) returns a currency struct instance, given a currency's total value represented by the fractional unit
2. ParseString(value string, code, symbol string, fulabel string, fushare uint) returns a currency struct instance, given a currency value represented as string
3. ParseFloat64(value float64, code, symbol string, funame string, fushare uint) returns a currency struct instance, given a currency value represented in float64

Computational methods

IMPORTANT: Computation is supported only between same type of currencies (i.e. currency codes should be same)

2. c1.AddInt(main int, fractional int) add the currency equivalent of the main & fractional int to c1
3. c1.Subtract(c2 currency) subtract c2 from c1, and update c1
4. c1.SubtractIn(main int, fractional int) subtract the currency equivalent of the main & fractional int from c1
5. c1.Multiply(n int) multiply c1 by n, where n is an integer
6. c1.MultiplyFloat64(n float64) multiply c1 by n, where n is a float64 value
7. c1.UpdateWithFractional(ftotal int) would update the the value of c1, where ftotal is the total value of the currency in fractional unit. e.g. INR, UpdateWithFractional(100) would set the main value as 1 and fractional unit as 0
8. c1.FractionalTotal() int returns the total value of the currency in its fractional unit. e.g. INR, if the Main value is 1 and fractional unit is 0, it would return 100, i.e. 100 paise
9. c1.Percent(n float64) currency returns a new currency instance which is n percentage of c1
10. c1.Divide(n int, retain bool)[]currency, ok returns a slice of currency of size n. ok if returned as true means the currency value was perfectly divisible by n. If retain is true, then c1 will have the remainder value after dividing otherwise it is distributed among the returned currencies.
Why does Divide(n int, retain bool) return a slice of currencies?

Divide unlike other operations, cannot be rounded off. If it is rounded, it would result in currency peddling.

e.g. ₹1/- (INR 1) is to be divided by 3. There are 2 options of dividing this by 3.

1. Set 33 paise per split, and retain the remaining 1 paise at source. (`Divide(n, true)`)

2. Set 1 of the split with an extra value, i.e. 34 + 33 + 33. (`Divide(n, false)`)

Multiple currency representations

1. c1.String(prefixSymbol bool), returns a string representation of the currency value. Returns string prefixed by its respective symbol if prefixSymbol is true
2. c1.Float64(), returns a float64 representation of the currency value

1. Ref - Sub unit or fractional unit
2. Ref - Currencies - about currencies
3. Non-decimal sub unit in currencies are only used by 2 countries today. These are getting phased out.

IMPORTANT! This package does not support sub units which are not a power of 10. Nor does it support currencies with more than 1 sub unit
