- any idea if there is any support available for big decimal no.s in
I have found the ECMA specification (ECMA-262) which mentions that it
supports double-precision 64-bit format IEEE 754 values. Refer to
4.3.20 section of Ecma-262.pdf attached.
Searching further for IEEE 754 specs, it has been mentioned that the
finite positive and finite negative numbers furthest from zero
(represented by the value with 2046 in the Exp field and all 1s in the
fraction field) are ±1.7976931348623157×10308
(1.7976931348623157e+308). Refer to the 3.2.2 section of ieee754.pdf
http://www.irt.org/script/1031.htm (This link mentions that "As
for integers between: -9007199254740992 (-2^53) and 9007199254740992
- As per the specifications mentioned, only 15 significant digits are
off and presented as exponential number which will fail in the case of
high value transactions.
the library and also some limitations makes it not much useful.
