[REBOL] Re: Big number calculations

From: meekerdb:rain at: 21-Feb-2001 12:56

I'm not sure what you're asking (or whether I can help). If by footprint, you mean printed representation, then using base 16, 32, 64, etc with ascii or unicode symbols will work. If you mean computer memory space, then you either have to give up on representing all numbers uniquely, which is what exponential notation does, or you have to just accept the memory hit and use bignums, as in LISP.
