I think that can be considered as a bug (probably in the hex input routine).
0xffff:ffff does fit in 32 bit variable.
When interpreted as signed value, it would be -1.
Currently in Vedit, you must type negative numbers in order to enter values larger than 0x7fff:ffff.
For example, the following does work:
123456 & -1
But I think it would be useful if we could use unsigned numbers in online calculator, in addition to signed numbers.
I often use online calculator to calculate addresses etc.
