[Rd] Guidance implementing high precision integers

Gracious Experts:

I am considering implementing extended precision integers as an R package, using wrappers to C functions. My intent is to allow, say, 4-word length integer values supporting basic arithmetic and a few number theoretic functions.

At this stage of the game, I am looking to you for guidance about how best to approach this sort of thing with R. Ideally, I'd like to use S4 style classes on the R side.

What is the most direct, fail-safe approach?

Thank you for any assistance,

Jeffrey A. Sarnoff
