    Arbitrary Precision C++

    How big can the numbers get for C++ to still be able to handle them?
    I need C++ to handle numbers that are hundred thousands, millions,
    and/or hundreds of millions of digits. It is called arbitrary precision or
    BigNum (for big number). Are there any programs that can handle
    numbers this big?

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
