in reply to BigInt bug?

The output of your first script is correct on this machine:

2 choose 0 = 1
2 choose 0 = 1
2 choose 0 = 1
2 choose 0 = 1

Perl 5.10.1, Math::BigInt 1.95.

    using 5.10.1, Math::BigInt 1.89 I get
    2 choose 0 = 3 2 choose 0 = 3 2 choose 0 = 3 2 choose 0 = 3

    I then updated to Math::BigInt 1.997 and I get

    2 choose 0 = 1 2 choose 0 = 1 2 choose 0 = 1 2 choose 0 = 1

    Looks like you found a bug that's been fixed. (and helped me update...)

      Using 5.14.2, Math::BigInt 1.994 I get

      2 choose 0 = 1 2 choose 0 = 1 2 choose 0 = 1 2 choose 0 = 1
