I'm pretty new to C++. I'm working with Visual C++ 6.0 on Windows XP, doing mainly console apps at the moment.
My question deals with how C++ handles large numbers--like > 5,000,000,000. As I understand it, the biggest number that an int variable can handle is 2,147,483,647, and the biggest than an unsigned int can handle is 4,294,967,295. That ok for most programs... but I can't imagine that no C++ application is able to handle bigger numbers!
