Subject: Problem with arithmetic operation with 1.80
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 820b
Hello, The following script dies. #/usr/bin/perl use bignum; sub hexToChar { my ($h) = @_; length($h) % 2 == 0 || die "ha"; # <-- die here } hexToChar('0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b0b'); # length is 40 It doesn't die if I remove "use bignum;". POD of bignum says it loads Math::BigInt.. So I report here. I downgraded Math::BigInt to 1.79 and this problem didn't occur. Sorry for my poor English :-) G.Y.Park in South Korea P.S. I found this problem when I was trying to install Num::OpenID::JanRain::Consumer module. After I downgrade BigInt, this problem vanished but a lot of new errors occurred in test process. These new errors are related to "Math::BigInt::bcmp" operation, so I doubt there is another problem in BigInt 1.79.. I'll report it again if I can find the exact reason.

I cannot replicate this issue, the script works fine for me with Math::BigInt 1.79, 1.80, 1.81 and 1.82 :/ All the best, tels

I am marking this bug as resolved as I didn't get any feedback to the contrary. If this is not yet fixed with the newest v1.87 of Math::BigInt, please re-open this bug report. All the best, Tels
