Subject: Bignum Parsing


A simple patch that gets the parsing of Bignums by the Ruby Tokenizer up and


A new Create method in BigInteger uses the same algorithm, more or less, as
IronPython so I assume that this is OK; clearly it could be optimized but
then how often are Bignums parsed in anyway?


Patched up the Tokenizer too so that it calls this method and you can now
write really big numbers into rbx, like


>>> 88888888888888888888888888.

=> #<Bignum:0x0000058>
