big numbers in C++

Discussion in 'C++' started by Elliot Chance, May 26, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I want to store very big numbers (eg. 2^1024)

    Does any know how to store numbers like this, so they can then be
    manipulated, (+-*/)

    Thanks, Elliot

    By far the simplest way is to use the work that someone else has already
    done. There are several free libraries that handle this sort of thing, for
    instance
