NumberMarks$MinPrecision

$MaxPrecision

FilledSmallSquare$MaxPrecision gives the maximum number of digits of precision to be allowed in arbitrary-precision numbers.

FilledSmallSquare The default value of $MaxPrecision is 1000000.

FilledSmallSquare$MaxPrecision = Infinity uses the maximum value possible on a particular computer system, given roughly by Log[10, $MaxNumber].

FilledSmallSquare$MaxPrecision is measured in decimal digits, and need not be an integer.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 3.1.5.
