+An unsigned integer type
+of a fixed width of exactly 128 bits.
+.PP
+When using GCC,
+it is supported only for targets where
+the compiler is able to generate efficient code for 128-bit arithmetic".
+.PP
+Versions:
+GCC 4.6.0 and later.
+.PP
+Conforming to:
+This is a non-standard extension, present in GCC.
+It is not standardized by the C language standard nor POSIX.
+.PP
+Notes:
+This type is available without including any header.
+.PP
+Bugs:
+It is not possible to express an integer constant of type
+.I unsigned __int128
+in implementations where
+.I unsigned long long
+is less than 128 bits wide.

+See also the
