'Thousand Digit Op' will multiply with two integer numbers that are 1000 digits or less and will divide with two integer numbers that are 2000 digits or less. Then it's possible to work with decimal point numbers by dropping the decimal points and keeping track of where the decimal point should be in the result.

The application uses a small amount of instruction in the loops and then a large number of fast loops.

Otherwise, I'm not familar with any open source libraries but there is a shareware UBasic available
