in reply to built in function for binary division

All arithmetics in Perl is performed in binary. Though that's not really relevant, because the outcome would be the same if it were performed in any other base.

$ perl -wE 'say 4 + 5' # uses binary addition under the hood 9

It's just the input and output of numbers that decimal by default; but as others have shown you, there are ways to achieve binary input too.

So I guess the real question is: what do you want to achieve?
