`Hello,
Is "maxInt == 1e14-1" true? (found by trying to display -- higher values get exp notation)

PS: Just read at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/945731/what-is-the-maximum-value-of-a-number-in-lua that the mantissa is 52-bit wide. This should allow slightly bigger integers, no? (0xfffffffffffff ~ 4.5035996273705e+15, if I'm right)

`
`Is there any available tool for bigger (accurate) integers / for arbitrary long integers?

I will need integers which width is n*24 bits, where n is not yet known, but for sure >= 3.
