etc. Then whatever you want to do with it should in theory be possible, using floats, though of course I don’t know exactly what you’re doing with the numbers. I think you can also munge two 32-bit numbers to get a 64-bit one with a few tricks, though I don’t recall the exact steps.

Sounds interesting though, I love this stuff…

If you want arbitrarily large integer precision, you’ll need to use something like Mathematica
