I was looking for ways to make the LNUM patch do this (having decimal number arithmetics). It proved too difficult without having a dedicated library taking care of the arithmetics etc.

Please tell us when/if you find a module that does that great. With for example complex numbers there's both the module way and the patch way (LNUM, completely integrated to Lua native number type).

I've been unable to find a Lua module for implementing the long number used in Python to represent ridiculously long numbers. Is there something like this for Lua? And if not, does any one know how Python does this or how this could be implemented in Lua?
