datatype to handle large numbers
I am trying to code a datatype to handle decimal numbers having more than 12 digits and the related arithmetic functions. I need help on how to accept such a large value and how to store it. Any leads would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

You might want to consider the GMP library, which can handle arbitrary precision arithmetic. You can find some information here
