Vignesh: This issue tracker is for reporting bugs in the CPython interpreter.  
Requests for help with problems with your code should go elsewhere, such as 
pythonlist mail list or stackoverflow.com web site.

In this case, your problem is described in the error message: you input an int 
that is too large for the array of C longs.  The following is a much shortened 
example equivalent to your code.

>>> import array
>>> longs = array.array('l',[])
>>> longs.append(2222222222222222222222222222222222222222222)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#2>", line 1, in <module>
OverflowError: Python int too large to convert to C long

When a program gets input from a user, it must be prepared to catch and deal 
with exceptions.  If you have more questions, ask on a user help forum, such as 
the 2 I listed above.
