# HugeInt

An advanced numerical data type designed to handle very large integers.

## Declaration

The `HugeInt`

type supports integers up to 4096 bits. Here's how you can declare a `HugeInt`

:

```
h = 0x123456789abcdef # HugeInt declaration
```

`HugeInt`

is always expressed in hexadecimal format

## Operating HugeInts

`HugeInt`

supports a variety of operations, making it versatile for complex calculations:

`==`

equal`!=`

not equal`+`

plus`-`

minus`*`

multiply`/`

divide`%`

modulus`**`

power`<`

less`<=`

less or equal`>`

more`>=`

more or equal`&`

logical AND`|`

logical OR

### Caveats

In FatScript, `HugeInt`

is specifically designed as an unsigned type, and thus it can only represent positive values.

Interactions between `HugeInt`

and other numeric types, such as Number, are not directly available. To perform such operations, you should convert the value to `HugeInt`

using its constructor (available through the prototype extensions).

## Precision

`HugeInt`

offers high precision for very large integers, essential in fields like cryptography and large-scale computations. This precision remains consistent across its entire range.

```
prime = 0xfffffffffffffffc90fdA... # a large prime number
```

Contrary to floating-point numbers, `HugeInt`

represents discrete integer values, maintaining consistent precision and spacing throughout its range:

```
0________________________________________
| | | | | | | | | overflow
```

the maximum value is 2^4096 - 1, equivalent to a number with 1233 decimal digits or the 0xfff... literal (with 1024 repetitions of the letter f)

`HugeInt`

is particularly well-suited for scenarios that demand exact integer arithmetic without rounding errors, especially when dealing with values far beyond the limits of Number type. It is important to ensure that all operations remain within its supported capacity, as exceeding this limit will raise a `ValueError`
