When compiling C programs using gcc under Solaris, 
I am not able to deal with long double parameters.  That is, I cannot go 
beyond a floating point range of 10^308, and I need to get to a maximum of 
10^4932.  So basically the problem is how to declare a long double, and do 
I need to change the setting of the compiler?  If so, please tell us 
how.  Thank you.
