( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The latest I've tried this on is 5.18, so it might have been fixed in later builds

It hasn't been - and it goes back to at least 5.16, and it affects 32-bit perls in the same way for unsigned values greater than 2 ** 31.

I couldn't find a way to successfully perform integer division/modulation with these large unsigned values without resorting to XS (as you've done).
(Update: Obviously, I've ignored Math::BigInt.)
However, I'm sure the integer pragma is supposed to cater for this and I couldn't find anything in the docs to suggest otherwise.

So I've submitted a bug report against integer for this - in case there's someone who cares enough to fix it.
(I hit "Send" before thinking to reference the original PM post in that report ... sorry 'bout that.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
