# Is there any big integer class for Visual Basic .NET (128 or more bits)?

Well I can find many big integer libraries but they are for all programming languages except VB.NET. Does anyone know a class/library for Visual Basic .NET which can handle very big numbers? (I'd like to handle 1024 or even more bits). The only calculation support I need it addition, substitution, multiplication, division and rounding.

It's ment to be used with this code:

```Dim Letterz() As Integer = {33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 0}
Function itoa(ByVal val As ULong)
Dim toret As String = ""
Dim TempVal As ULong = val
For pos As ULong = 0 To 999999999999999999
If TempVal > 0 Then
Dim remainder As ULong = TempVal Mod Letterz.Length
Dim ToInsert As Integer = Letterz(remainder)
Dim ToInsStr As String = Chr(ToInsert)
toret = ToInsStr & toret
Dim DividedVal As Double = TempVal / Letterz.Length
DividedVal = DividedVal - 0.5
DividedVal = Math.Round(DividedVal, 0, MidpointRounding.ToEven)
TempVal = DividedVal
Else
Exit For
End If
Next
itoa = toret
End Function

Function atoi(ByVal val As String) As ULong
Dim CURRNUM As ULong = 0
Dim len As ULong = val.Length()
If len > 0 Then
For i As ULong = 0 To len - 1
For x As ULong = 0 To Letterz.Length - 1
Dim y As ULong = (len - i) - 1
If val(y) = Chr(Letterz(x)) Then
Dim PWR As ULong = Math.Pow(Letterz.Length, i)
Dim MLTPLY As ULong = x * PWR
CURRNUM += MLTPLY
End If
Next
Next
End If
atoi = CURRNUM
End Function
Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
TextBox2.Text = itoa(ULong.Parse(TextBox1.Text))
TextBox3.Text = atoi(TextBox2.Text).ToString()
End Sub
```

There is the BigInteger type in System.Numerics that was introduced in .NET 4. It can be used to represent "an arbitrarily large signed integer."

### Wrap Text in UITextField?

Does anyone know how to wrap text in a UITextField? I am using Cocoa/Objective-C in Xcode for my iPhone project, and I can not seem to find a way to do this...

### Advantage of using async socket server

In which situration should we use an async socket (either Tcp or Udp) server over sync socket server?
