Large numbers on autoit

Recommended Posts


Hello everybody.

I have this "strange" problem.

I want to use very large numbers on a script (for example 2^100) or even larger

When i ask Autoit to calculate lets say 2^100 the number that returns is 1.26765060022823e+030

whitch is actually: 1.267.650.600.

but the real one is: 1.267.650.600.228.229.401.496.703.205.376

I fethermore process that number so the results that i take are falls

I calculated the real number using windows calculator so i supose that my CPU is capable of

processing that kind of numbers.

I would appreciate any solution or advice for my problem

Thanks in advance.

Coding can be fun when you do it your own.

Look at the help file's FAQ's under "What are the current technical limits of AutoIt v3?":

Number range (floating point): 1.7E–308 to 1.7E+308 with 15-digit precision

I think there might have been some UDF's that extended this but I can't find any atm :/
