If you are browsing this forum, it is a safe assumption to believe you know of the Fibonacci Series.

After having a couple of minutes, and some random thoughts, I put together a little piece of code that will print this series out to a file.

``````Private Sub FibWrite(ByVal iMax As Int64)
Dim sw As New StreamWriter("Path")
Dim n0 As Int64 = 0
Dim n1 As Int64 = 1

Try
For i = 0 To iMax
Dim iTemp As Int64 = n1
n1 = n1 + n0
n0 = iTemp
sw.WriteLine(n1)
Next
Catch ex As Exception
MsgBox(ex.ToString)
sw.WriteLine(ex.Message)
Finally
sw.Close()
sw.Dispose()
End Try
End Sub
``````

I reached a total of 90 iterations before overflow occurs.

Let's have some fun with this, shall we?

If you use BigInteger as in

``````Private Sub FibWrite()

Dim sw As New System.IO.StreamWriter("d:\temp\fib.txt")

Dim n0 As BigInteger = 0
Dim n1 As BigInteger = 1

Try
For i = 1 To 1000
Dim iTemp As BigInteger = n1
n1 = n1 + n0
n0 = iTemp
sw.WriteLine(n1)
Next
Catch ex As Exception
Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message)
sw.Close()
End Try

sw.Close()

End Sub
``````

The 1000th number in the sequence is

``````70330367711422815821835254877183549770181269836358732742604905087154537118196933579742249494562611733487750449241765991088186363265450223647106012053374121273867339111198139373125598767690091902245245323403501

And the 10000th number is
