I would like to make a LUDICROUSLY high number calculator in Python.
I am thinking 60 numbers and a decimal point. So numbers could be in a format like these:
60 numbers, 30 numbers decimal point 30 numbers (30nums.30nums), or decimal point 60
numbers (.60nums). E.g.

999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999.999999999999999999999999999999

But, I am wondering if Python has anything that would support such large numbers (including
math functions)? If not, I think I can program the whole process myself, but I'd prefer
not to. :)

Any ideas welcome!

There are different libraries for big floating numbers in python, most of them based on the gnu multiprecision library see bigfloat and gmpy and also clnum.

See decimal package:

``````>>> from decimal import *
>>> getcontext().prec = 100
>>> Decimal(1).exp()
Decimal('2.718281828459045235360287471352662497757247093699959574966967627724076630353547594571382178525166427')
>>> Decimal(1).exp()**34
Decimal('583461742527454.8814029027346103910190036592389411081057829421204316676742119505811471038583648840548')
>>>``````

It is missing trig functions however.

Great!
I'll try BigFloat and Decimal!

Thanks a lot guys!
