<inttypes.h> is a fairly vast header which supports largish integer
types mostly. It has a few fairly bad problems, but we're working on
them. If I write on upy (using __int64_t to avoid worrying about what
size long is...), would people be interested in looking at integrating
it, both into the system and into user code?
One major nuisance; to print an int64_t, you do
printf("%" PRId64 "\n", i64);
because printf's format is pretty hard to educate.
I'm proposing "%:64d", but I don't know that it'll go over well.
