If you are willing to use the Python programming language, I wrote a libary called DecInt specifically designed to calculate very large numbers in exact decimal format. It will use GMP if GMPY (GMP for Python) is available.

For Python, go to www.python.org

For DecInt and GMPY, go to home.comcast.net/~casevh

For psyco (a Just In Time compiler), go to http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=41036

Using an AMD Athlon MP2800+, I'm able to calculate M43 in under 7 seconds.
