    new data type

    I am working on a project that requires that I store a rather large integer. Is there a way to create a data type of a new size to fit my needs.

    Thanks!

    __int64 is still too small. It needs to be bigger.

    just curious, what are you making? 64 bits can make a huge number.

    You can always create your own class that holds "any sized" int in a string and overloads the mathamatical operators. Or have a look around the net there are dozens of such classes floating around.
