Java: BigInteger


Many of you might have wondered, as I did, how to deal with integers of say more than 50 digits or so. And might have thought about breaking the integer into parts or storing it in a string and parse letter-by-letter.
Java provides a class for such large numbers: BigInteger.
You can find it in the package: java.math.BigInteger
We can do some operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division etc, but slightly in a different way.
For detailed information on its usage, have a look at this.
