I was playing around with the function PrimePi and trying different
arguments. When I tried PrimePi[10^15] I got the error message saying that
the argument is too large for this implementation. I know that it is a large
number.! When I use 10^14 as the argument I get an answer, it takes a while
but I get an answer.
I tried this on a PC running Vista Home Premium 64-bit with Mathematica 6.
Then I tried the same thing under Windows XP 32-bit. There was no
difference, I got an answer for 10^14 and same error message with 10^15.
My question is: I thought that with a 64-bit computer I could use larger
numbers.! Maybe I am misunderstanding something here, so please help me
