▶ BIG NUMBERS
For most applications, integral (whole) numbers are in the range { -1000, 1000 }. But what happens when greater numbers are needed to be handled?

Tyl gives you the ability to handle any integral values, and supports all arithmetic calculations with them. Moreover, Tyl actually abstracts any indication of a number as being a big number, therefore enabling the programmer to write the same code as written for regular numbers.

Let's assign the number 100000000001 to a variable:
bigint 100000000001
print bigint
100000000001
As in numbers page, the big number 100000000001 is declared and assigned to `bigint` variable.
Likewise, all other operations and instructions in numbers page, are valid here.

Example of big numbers program:
num 1
index 20 ~ print newline + num ** 9999

9999

99980001

To make the distinction between real numbers and big numbers, consider this:
realnum math.power 10 15
bigint 100000 * 100000 * 100000
print realnum
print bigint
print realnum - bigint
1E+15
1000000000000000
0
Big real number is printed with 'E+' notation, while big number is printed in an "as is" manner. Last subtraction shows that their value is the same.
