in reply to Too big?

primorial returns either a native int or a Math::BigInt object, depending on size. Math::GMPz's new() doesn't like Math::BigInt objects.

One workaround is adding "". before primorial, which will force it into a string regardless of the type. E.g. say Math::GMPz->new("".primorial(53));
