Big number arithmetic

Basic operations for working with large integers. The bignum funtion converts a positive integer, string or raw vector into a bignum type. All basic Arithmetic and Comparison operators such as +, -, *, ^, %%, %/%, ==, !=, <, <=< code="">, > and >= are implemented for bignum objects. The https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_exponentiation{Modular exponenent} (a^b %% m) can be calculated using bignum_mod_exp when b is too large for calculating a^b directly.

Usage
bignum(x, hex = FALSE)

bignum_mod_exp(a, b, m)

Arguments
x
an integer, string (hex or dec) or raw vector
hex
set to TRUE to parse strings as hex rather than decimal notation
a
bignum value for (a^b %% m)
b
bignum value for (a^b %% m)
m
bignum value for (a^b %% m)

Examples
# create a bignum
x <- bignum(123L)
y <- bignum("123456789123456789")
z <- bignum("D41D8CD98F00B204E9800998ECF8427E", hex = TRUE)

# Basic arithmetic
div <- z %/% y
mod <- z %% y
z2 <- div * y + mod
stopifnot(z2 == z)
stopifnot(div < z)
