Eval Function

Can any one help in this please.
I'm using eval function in JavaScript, But when the eval method return
a big big number the result will be a number with "E"
for example :
Eval(1000000000 000000000000) will result 1e+21
I need to get the number as it is . can i ??

Thanks in advance

Generally no.

Javascript numbers have limited precision (i.e. they can only contain a
finite number of digits), following the IEEE standards. See:-


You will need to research arbitrary precision mathematics if you really
need greater precision.

Probably a bad idea.
But when the eval method return
a big big number the result will be a number with "E"
for example :
Eval(1000000000 000000000000) will result 1e+21
That would be the default string representation of that number for
your browser. The notation "1e+21" means 1 * 10^21, i.e., 1 with
21 zeroes after it, which is exactly the number you entered.

You should also be aware, that numbers that big can't all be represented
exactly. E.g., (1e+21 == (1e+21 + 1)) gives true, because the 64 bit
floating point numbers used by Javascript does not have the resolution
to represent (1e+21 + 1).
I need to get the number as it is . can i ??

You can compute your own string representation of the number.
Maybe something like:
function numberToString( number, base) {
base = base || 10;
var res = [];
while (number > 0) {
var digit = number % base;
res.push((digit < 10) ? digit : String.fromChar Code(digit - 10 + 97));
number = (number - digit) / base;
return res.reverse().j oin("");
Call it as:
numberToString( 1e+21, 10)
Make sure base is an integer between 2 and 36!

The number should come out as is by default, it should't use the Euler's
format, I think the issue is in your using eval(), eval() is outputting
such, instead, skip eval() altogether.

No doubt you should not in fact be using eval - see newsgroup FAQ 4.40.

In javascript, Numbers are stored as IEEE Doubles, a binary floating-
point format. If you want to see that, which you don't, consider
<URL:http://www.merlyn.demo n.co.uk/js-misc0.htm#IEEE> .

If you really do need to express a large number in fixed-point, you will
need to accept rounding errors (though it may be possible to mask the
obvious ones) - see BigStrOfMN in
<URL:http://www.merlyn.demo n.co.uk/js-round.htm#CAI>.

Alternatively, if you want results accurate past one part in about 1e15,
you can implement your own arithmetic using arrays of digits to
represent numbers. I've done it, for Pascal/Delphi integer work, in
