Python has (arbitrarily) long integer support built right in. For instance:
Notice the 'L' on the end of the result implies the value is a "long'
integer, not a 32-bit integer.
In recent versions of Python, arithmetic on normal integers will
convert to long integers when an overflow occurs.
Is this what you wanted?
