how to write a program loop


How do I write a program loop to find a power of n (n^x) where x is about 
200 digits. I know that my equation will blow-up if plug-in directly :

	 200^x ; where x is 200 digits.

so I want to find the result by using iterations -i.e. 2^4 = 2^(2)*2 = 16
Please advise.
