BigAl allows you to calculate really BIG numbers with an accuracy your desktop calculator is still dreaming of.
In February 2001, I wanted to know the result of the factorial of one million. BigAl was born and both many CPU cycles and months later I knew the exact result. Since the beginning, BigAl was able to handle numbers stored in files. Meanwhile a lot of functions has been added and a few of them got a much better performance. BigAl uses the Java classes called BigInteger and BigDecimal.
