The limits for using the native representation of integers on the //! current architecture. Any integer that is outside this range uses //! a more complex and slower representation. Also, some builtin //! functions that don't expect very large integers might start to //! complain about invalid argument type when given values outside //! this range (they typically say something like "Expected integer, //! got object"). //! //! @note //! The size of the native integers can be controlled when Pike is //! compiled with the configure flags @expr{--with-int-int@}, //! @expr{--with-long-int@}, and @expr{--with-long-long-int@}. The //! default is to use the longest available integer type that fits //! inside a pointer, which typically means that it's 64 bit on "true" //! 64 bit architectures. //! //! @note //! If Pike is compiled with the configure flag //! @expr{--without-bignum@} (which is discouraged), then all //! arithmetic operations will instead silently wrap around at these //! limits.
