Arithmetic with 8-byte integers will be much faster when using Fortran
and C++ compilers that directly support it, compared to Python, which
resorts to infinite precision arithmetic when 4-byte integers cannot
be used. Search for "speed integer*8" in this newsgroup -- there was a
discussion in late Feb early March 2004.

Hi,
i'd like to use 64 Bit Integer values in Python,
can anybody give me a hint on what are the limits
in Python?
Can i use signed and unsigned 64 Bit Integers?
Thanks for hints,
Torsten.
