Category:Arbitrary precision

From Rosetta Code

Arbitrary-precision arithmetic is a type of calculation that is involves numbers with the number of digits of precision are limited only by the available memory of the system (as opposed to fixed-precision arithmetic, where precision is determined by a fixed number of storage bits used for numbers). Arbitrary-precision arithmetic is sometimes called bignum arithmetic and is provided natively by some languages (Such as Lisp, Haskell, and Rexx) and through libraries such as GMP in others.
