in thread a close prime number

It's not.

use Benchmark qw( cmpthese ); my $large_number = 3 * 1234647389; cmpthese( -1, { modulo => sub { $large_number % 3 == 0 }, divide => sub { my $v; $v += $_ for split //, $large_number; $v % +3 == 0}, }); -------- Rate divide modulo divide 30919/s -- -99% modulo 2120579/s 6759% --

By a factor of 67 times faster. Or so ...

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
