in reply to built in function for binary division

Do you mean something like the following?

use strict; use warnings; my $quotient = 0b10010110 / 0b1111; # 150 / 15 print sprintf '%b', $quotient; # prints 1010 (decimal 10)

    Hi Kenosis,

    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?

        Hi Kenosis

        Yes I was looking for some binary math subroutine for this, but what you have shown by preceding 0b is also fine.
        Thank you !!
