```I think that the best thing is to work in logarithmic way, to avoid the limitations of the CPU.
If y = 10^400, to do y=400*log(10), to change all you formulate to the logarithmic way and the final result to apply the antilogarithm.

Hi everyone

I have a problem about "infinite".
If I type 10^308, R shows "1e+308"
When I type 10^309, R shows "Inf"
So, we know if a value is large than 1.XXXe+308, R will show "Inf"
How can i do let the value, like "10^400" ,typed in R to show the word
"1e+400" not "Inf"
