Feedback Case Number: 62339
I submitted a feature request for adding a capability in Xojo for large integers. My hobby interest is developing ,testing and understanding math algorithms. At present I am learning number theory algorithms with special interest in prime factorization… Most algorithms need large integer support to be useful. Not very challenging to factor a 64 bit number for instance.
Currently I am using Python with has excellent big integer support. The python capability is its one and only built-in integer.
I’m pretty sure that there are other users that would find this capability useful for things like cryptography.
I tried to find duplicates in Feedback but there as so many feedback cases with “integer” in them that it made the search daunting. Sorry if this is a duplicate.
