If you take a look at Math::BigInt, you will find that the method bdiv in list context returns quotient and remainder.
SYNOPSIS use Math::BigInt; $i = Math::BigInt->new($string); $i->bneg return BINT negation $i->babs return BINT absolute value $i->bcmp(BINT) return CODE compare numbers (undef,<0,=0,>0) $i->badd(BINT) return BINT addition $i->bsub(BINT) return BINT subtraction $i->bmul(BINT) return BINT multiplication $i->bdiv(BINT) return (BINT,BINT) division (quo,rem) just quo if sc +alar $i->bmod(BINT) return BINT modulus $i->bgcd(BINT) return BINT greatest common divisor $i->bnorm return BINT normalization $i->blsft(BINT) return BINT left shift $i->brsft(BINT) return (BINT,BINT) right shift (quo,rem) just quo if + scalar $i->band(BINT) return BINT bit-wise and $i->bior(BINT) return BINT bit-wise inclusive or $i->bxor(BINT) return BINT bit-wise exclusive or $i->bnot return BINT bit-wise not
Although it's a bit slow and clunky, Math::BigInt's overload mechanism makes a good attempt at a drop-in replacement for n bit integers.
