[REBOL] integer! which range?

From: yogi:helimail at: 13-Nov-2001 18:29

Hello, I've tested something in the REBOL/Core-Console. But, I don't understand that. Look: In the console, I type the following: testzahl: 1 while [true] [testzahl: testzahl * 10] An Error occured: ** Math Error: Math or number overflow After that, I type "print testzahl" REBOL shows the following: 1000000000 This looks very small. So, if I type in the console simply 999999999999999999999999 , it works! So, why is there such a difference? What is the biggest integer!? cu, yogi
