Install [cpan://Math::BigInt::GMP] and <code>use Math::BigInt lib => 'GMP';</code> and things get much faster. You can distribute code in with that use, without the module locally installed everything still works, it just falls back on a slow Perl version. (Some may prefer [cpan://Math::BigInt::Pari].)<p>
[cpan://Math::Big] is meant to be a convenient wrapper around other modules. Use a faster one and it gets faster. Use a slower one, and it isn't.
