in reply to Visualizing HUGE integers.

Actually, I think you might want to reconsider SVG.

Firefox supports the features that I think you will want (you're a little vague), and even IE with the Adobe plug-in works very well.

But even better, the drawing program Inkscape reads and writes SVG and can export images in PNG format (not to mention a long list of other formats).

    Here's the Firefox bug I reported.
    They said there's a Cairo internal limitation that won't allow it to render any dimensions > 32768
    Inkscape worked out great for viewing the SVG's I generated from Perl. Thanks!
    I guess Mathematica is the right tool for huge scientific visualizations, but it costs a bit much. It would be cheaper to take a Math University course, just to get access to a lab with Mathematica.
