The documentation for Math::BigInt has the following example: $x = Math::BigInt->new(12345678890123456789); # bad $x = Math::BigInt->new('12345678901234567890'); # good This is quite correct, but the example would be better if both lines used the same value. The "bad" example doubles the first 8 and is missing the trailing 0. And on a 64-bit system, 12345678901234567890 doesn't lose precision. I suggest adding more digits. I'm also tempted to suggest inserting a space after the "(" so the digits line up, but I'll leave that to your judgement. Corrected example: $x = Math::BigInt->new( 123456789012345678901234567890 ); # bad $x = Math::BigInt->new('123456789012345678901234567890'); # good -- Keith Thompson <Keith.S.Thompson@gmail.com>
