Abstract A description is given of a program for computing the solution to a small number of standard numerical analysis problems to any specified accuracy, up to a limit of 2000 correct decimal places. Each computed number is bounded in an interval with a multiple precision midpoint. Arithmetic operations involving these numbers are executed according to interval arithmetic concepts, with non-significant digits automatically discarded. Details are supplied of problem specification and problem computation.
