    Interesting but I’m trying to think of a time where I use large number ‘in code’… I can see how storing large numbers is necessary and common… but to actually have those numbers in code? Not so sure.

    for example to define a constant like MAX_INT_VALUE or something similar...

    An example where we’re using raw big numbers is to define a range of allowed payment amount for a concrete payment method.

    We actually use it quite a lot in Spryker. Its very handy for all of the cent values and make them human readably in the editor
