bigintegers

hello,

im in a crypto class. we had to compute with big integers and i found out
swift 4 doesnt support BigIntegers but the new integer protocol can pave
the way to help create it.

I want to know how immediate the plans to implement it in the standard
library and if there was any help needed to create one. Some key points to
keep in mind would be helpful with swift context. Thank you!

I checked this out too! Pretty awesome

I don't know that there are any plans to implement big integers in the standard library. There's at least one open-source implementations, though: https://github.com/attaswift/BigInt

Good luck with your class! :slight_smile:
