Yes i looked at that one too, however I don't know what limbs are.
basically what I am doing is I am writing soomething where I use A LOT of
these integers. I want to figure out how many I of these integers I can
keep around.
It would be new to be able to determine the size of an integer in bytes.
In a previous message I saw that checking the length of a string
representation in binary and divide it by 8.
Knowing there are other types than just integers too, makes me wonder if
that actually is true.
