7.80 .quad bignums

.quad expects zero or more bignums, separated by commas. For each bignum, it emits an 8-byte integer. If the bignum wont fit in 8 bytes, it prints a warning message; and just takes the lowest order 8 bytes of the bignum.

The term quad comes from contexts in which a word is two bytes; hence quad-word for 8 bytes.
