  Sorry for the HTML version in the buttom of this email.
I don't think it is possible to post using gmail without a
html-version in the end.

Anyway to my problem:

I am trying to create a vector to store objects create with gmp::as.bigq().

My first attempt:
V <- vector("bigq", 100)

My second attempt after understand that I probably need to
examine a bigq with typeof()

V <- vector(typeof(as.bigq(1)), 100) # typeof(as.bigq(1)) is raw
V[[100]] <- as.bigq(1,2)

With the error message:
Error in V[[100]] <- as.bigq(1, 2) :
  more elements supplied than there are to replace

And now I understand that bigq is stored as raw-bytes and it
is has a length more than 1. Actually:
[1] 16

Please advise.
Thanks a lot.
