I haven't been able to find the answer to this anywhere. So...
I'm setting a double to equal the value of 10 to the 10th power as shown here:
double myDbl = java.lang.Math.pow(10, 10);
Its returning the number in exponentional notation and what I want is the number in the format of 100. What's the method to accomplish this number format?
Thanks for any assist.

Cheap way: cast the result to a long.
