    Default Manipulating large values

    Is BigInteger and BigDecimal the only way to manipulate extremely large numbers?
    If you know of any resources on these two or other ways please do share, as I'm struggling to fit them with my problems.

    They are the easiest way, but there's nothing theoretically preventing someone from implementing their own versions of these classes (though I don't know why you would want to).

    What is the problem you're having with using these classes?

    I've got it now, thanks anyway, I didn't realise I had to put them in quotation marks.
