class, Math, MBS DataTypes Plugin (BigNumber), class BigNumberMBS,

Function: The class for a big number.
This is floating point number with 320 bits, precise for over 100 digits before the dot.
So if you want to store currency or other values where rounding should not happen, better store values multiplied, e.g. in cents.

Compared to normal double values, you have 5 times the bits.
And we check for math errors and raise exceptions if something goes wrong.

This class has no sub classes.
