If you have a really large binary number (that exceeds the
Number.MAX_SAFE_INTEGER value), then you can store it as the
BigInt primitive data type.
For example, if you're using the ES6 binary number syntax, then you could do the following:
// ES6+ const largeBinNum = BigInt(0b11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111); console.log(largeBinNum); // 9007199254740991n
Similarly, if you're using a binary string, then you could do the following:
const largeBinNum = BigInt('11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111'); console.log(largeBinNum); // 9007199254740991n
Please note that the "
n" at the end of the result merely suggests that the resulting number is a bigint primitive. You can easily convert it to a string or a number.
Please note that a
BigInt value cannot be used with the
Math object methods and cannot be mixed with a
Number value in operations. For that, you must coerce the value into the same type. However, be aware that coercing values back and forth might mean that the precision of a
BigInt value may be lost when it is coerced to a
