BigNumberMBS class

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Targets
class Math MBS DataTypes Plugin 16.5 Yes Yes Yes All
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.

See LargeNumberMBS for a 4128 bit integer number, about 1200 digits in length.
