built in function for binary division
Do you mean something like the following?
my $quotient = 0b10010110 / 0b1111; # 150 / 15
print sprintf '%b', $quotient; # prints 1010 (decimal 10)
Yes, this is what I meant. Is it possible to do by any built-in perl function ? Else any hint to achieve that ?
You can work with binary numbers as shown, viz., by preceding the number with 0b, performing the operation, and then formatting the result using sprintf.
Were you thinking of some other binary math function?
Yes I was looking for some binary math subroutine for this, but what you have shown by preceding 0b is also fine.
Thank you !!
The moon would crash into the Earth
The moon would breakup at the Roche limit
The wire would turn the Earth into a giant electromagnet
The Earth would turn into a giant yo-yo.
The moon would orbit every ~24 hours, significantly changing the lunar calendar
The centripetal force would rip out the Earth's core
All man-made satellites would be destroyed, causing great havoc
Moon landings would become significantly easier
The rope or wire would break, no matter how strong it was
The Vulcans would show up for First Contact causing yet another revision to the timeline
The Galactic Police would snip the rope and put the Earth on probation
Some idiot would get terrible, terrible, rope burn
We finally get those golf balls back
