Hi there. Recently, i wrote a program that would return ridiculously high numbers as BigIntegers. The program is working at all, but when the BigIntegers get to a value that I have estimated to be around 2^329554, and takes up between 30-45 kilobytes, i get this error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded at java.math.BigInteger.add(BigInteger.java:1075) at java.math.BigInteger.add(BigInteger.java:1048)
So, this is not really anything important, but I'm just cursious why it stops right there. Is it possible to have a number higher than this value, or is it the absolute highest number you can have in java? And is there any way go over this limit?
