comment is Ada really gone?
@supercat Yes Static validation is very good in Ada. With regard to your specific query, the correct use of subtypes and modular types to produce ranges to test against will solve your conundrum. There are also libraries available for very large number manipulation that will work on 16/32 bit machines. Have you read up on the strong type system in Ada ? Once you learn how to use it properly its very powerful.

comment Which source is quoteable for the popularity of programming languages?
Of course, just because there is lots of noise & hype & experimentation around a language, does not mean it is actually useful. It could just mean all the idiotic loudmouth band-wagon-jumpers are raving about it this week.
