Looking for extended precision programming software

I've been using a compiled BASIC-like programming language to do some number crunching projects, and have been very happy with it. But occasionally there's a problem that requires more than standard double precision math. Can anyone suggest a programming language that can do higher precision than standard double precision, and that is fast (must be compiled)?

Have you checked what's available for C or C++?
Thanks from Joppy

Math Focus: Dynamical systems, analytic function theory, numerics
I don't think any of the major languages (C++, Java, Python, Ruby, etc) don't have a solid implementations of arbitrary precision integers. Since you want a compiled language I would have to recommend C++.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I should clarify. I need extended precision floating point, not integers.

Although I'm not keen on learning C++, I'll have a look at it. I've avoided learning C and its variants because I've never seen any decent IDE for writing and testing C code.
