"long long long" too long?
I have a problem that "long long long" is too long for GCC .
I can't use a 64-bit integer in codeblocks?
how do I use a 64-bit integer in codeblocks...? Is it possible??

Yes, you can use a long long in code::blocks (with gcc), but if you're on windows, then you need to use the microsoft specific format for long longs.

I'm on windows 7 64 bit.

I want to use numbers bigger than (+-)2 billion something which is possible with 32bits...
and I am able to use "long long" already. I need "long long long" (3x "long").

There isn't any official type called long long long in C or C++. However there are some multiple precision libraries that let you compute to arbitrary precisions (subject to how much RAM you have in your computer). One such library is GNU MP Bignum library. See if that helps you out or google for "multiple precision library" to see other libraries (MPIR is another one).
Whoops, just noticed you wanted a 64 bit integer. Try #include <stdint.h> and declare your type as u64_t or i64_t for unsigned int or int.

int64_t doesnt work for 19 digit number...

And the triple long or "long long long", I found here :
And codeblocks seems to recognize "long long long" but gives an error that : "long long long is too long for gcc blah blah..."
