I was working on extended integers and added qint128 and quint128 to qglobal.h
Interesting. How far can we go with doubling bits? quint512 in case you have AVX-512 registers? (I must get a laptop with that feature, next time; since even Zen 3 doesn’t have it, I still don’t have any machine that does)
Variable-sized ints shouldn’t be a template though?
Maybe CBOR bignums would have a use for it? Various kinds of hashes? I’d really like it if cryptographic hashes often ended up being numeric again.
QUuid should have a use for it.
What else can we interoperate with? gmplib.org<http://gmplib.org> perhaps; maybe some C++ standard could be in the works?
What about having varints in Qt some day? (Like the way protobuf stores ints) I wonder why CBOR doesn’t have them.
