        Now, you're being a bit vague.  There's no such thing - in my
knowledge - as an 'unlimited number integer'.  It doesn't even make sense.
It's like saying "I wish I had a 'southwise tree grey'".

        Don't do that. Nonsense is bad.

        Just determine the upper range of the variable you're attempting
to save.  Either find a type that can represent that range, or generate a
new one by patchwork if existing types don't measure up.
