Last Modified: 2010-04-16

i need to store a large number (with 1000 digits) in the memory.
I program in C, under windows xp with dev-c++.

More precisely : i must calculate the first fibonacci number who had 1000 digits.

I have heard a method where each digit are stored in a array, but after for make some calculs (additions, divisions ect), i think it's very complicated. What are the methods ?
