1.100 LargePositiveInteger

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: LargeInteger
Category: Language-Data types

Just like my brother LargeNegativeInteger, I provide a few methods that allow LargeInteger to determine the sign of a large integer in a fast way during its calculations. For example, I know that I am larger than any LargeNegativeInteger. In addition I implement the guts of arbitrary precision arithmetic.
