If you need even bigger numbers look at Math::BigInt.

    I doubt OLE speaks in BigInts... Besides, at ten digits, he's nowhere near the point where they'd be needed. Perl and OLE can accurately represent with numbers up to 16 digits long, and they can represent numbers up to 308 digits long (with 53 bits of precision).

    Hi,

    Yes, I agree with ikegami. as far I know Math::BigInt is for very big numbers. I don't need them as in my case highest is 11 digit number I have.

    anyways, thanks for your reply and suggestion 'gam3'.
