Is it possible to get a long integer to hold a number of a possible length
of 255 characters, making the highest possible number 9.999... E254  if you
get my drift.

If it is possible, how do I do, I tried to assign more memory (well at
least I think I did). var&;256

Why do I just use scientific notation, well I want the number to be exact.

Thanks,
Stephen Botting
