[REBOL] Big number calculations

From: ptretter:norcom2000 at: 21-Feb-2001 12:33

Ok obviously REBOL has limitation with very big numbers. However, with the kind of calculations I want to make alot of software will have limitations. I'm looking to pick some brains for an alternative to scientific notation. I like scientific notation as it represents large numbers in a compact manner however; in my case, I have large numbers and want to represent a very large number in the smallest footprint possible. Scientific Notation doesnt acheive that with the type of numbers I will be calculating. Any mathmatics gurus have any ideas? References to where I can find out about the notations would be helpful also. Paul Tretter
