Math::GMP is designed to be a drop-in replacement both for Math::BigInt and for regular integer arithmetic. Unlike BigInt, though, Math::GMP uses the GNU gmp library for all of its calculations, as opposed to straight Perl functions. This results in a speed increase of anywhere from 5 to 30 times. A Math::GMP object can be used just as a normal numeric scalar would be -- the module overloads the normal arithmetic operators to provide as seamless an interface as possible.
