13:43 Util Hi voidqk
13:43 Util Yes, you can use $I999999999 , which has 9 digits after the '$I'.
13:43 Util t/compilers/imcc/syn/regressions_13.pir shows that 4096 digits works, too.
13:43 Util I am not aware of any arbitrary limit.
13:43 Util I just used this program (with varying command-line input) with parrot 7.10.0 to establish that 10 million digits works:
13:43 Util rm -f big.pir; perl -wE 'my $n = "9" x shift; say ".sub main :main\n\$I$n = 42\nsay \$I$n\n.end";' 8192 > big.pir; ./parrot big.pir
13:43 Util If you hit a limitation, please let us know!
