in reply to Modulo operation to return quotient and remainder

As pointed out, it's not difficult to do it with just a few lines of code. If you wanted to, you could also just create a subroutine like the untested code below:

use strict; use warnings; sub modulo { my $number = shift; my $divisor = shift; my $remainder = $number % $divisor; my $quotient = ($number - $remainder) / $divisor; return ($remainder, $quotient); }
