This library gives you the ability to work with real numbers of any length. (Depending on your computer and your patience.)

It is both faster* and more versatile than previous BYOND bignum libraries. It can handle math with decimal precision and both positive and negative numbers.

For example:

Say you wanted to multiply:
13,563,757,534,732.345324 * -324,236,743.45
This library allows you to do so.
(The answer is: -4397868572007015915234.5951278)

Check out the reference here:

Currently this library supports the four basic functions:
as well as number comparisons, rounding, and factorials.

More functions to come in the future.

Is there any way you could add a random proc for this?
