long integers in C

I want somehow to implement in ANSI C an abstract data type for very long integers. A secure limit would be around 100!, which means even 64bit numbers can be insufficient.
If anybody has a link to a site with source code I'd be grateful.

Thanks in advance,
john

I am developing this program in Fedora Core 5 linux system and I'd prefer if someone could provide a working source code just for the ADT BigNumber and not a whole C library.

Would you mind to explain me the difference?  What's different form working source code and a C library? In what way would you expect the sources? Object files?

Well creating variables that are of long double type I managed to compute even 100! with a classic recursive factorial function. So to be honest, there is no problem anymore and I didn't use any of your answers...

long double type won't be able to tell the difference between 100! and 100!+1, but if you don't require that, that's fine.
