I wrote a document months ago in which I used the longdivision package to do some calculations such as 999/12. At the time, the document compiled properly. However, it no longer compiles properly. I get four errors when I try to compile the code below using TeXMaker (from which I have drawn the error messages) or TeXStudio:

! Missing number, treated as zero.<to be read again>\__int_eval_end: \[\intlongdivision{999}{12}
! Package longdivision Error: Divisor '12' is too large (on line 6). It has 2(longdivision) digits, but divisors can be at most 9 digits(longdivision) long.Type <return> to continue.... \[\intlongdivision{999}{12}
! Missing number, treated as zero.<to be read again>\__int_eval_end: \[\intlongdivision{999}{12}
! Package longdivision Error: Divisor '12' is too large (on line 9). It has 2(longdivision) digits, but divisors can be at most 9 digits(longdivision) long.Type <return> to continue.... \[\intlongdivision{999}{12}

The second error strikes me as bizarre since 2 < 9.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{longdivision}

\begin{document}
\[\longdivision{999}{12}\]

\[\intlongdivision{999}{12}\]
\end{document}

I also get the same error when I load the packages calc and/or mathtools before loading the package longdivision.

Any tips on how to fix this error would be appreciated.

Update: Given SandyG's feedback, I tried compiling this code in Overleaf, where it works. However, I cannot compile this code on my Linux Mint 21 operating system, where I am using TeXStudio and have TexLive installed.

Update: David Carlisle requested that I add the full log file, which I have placed below.

  • Just came across this. I cannot recreate the problem—your code compiles correctly for me.

  • @SandyG Thanks for your feedback. I can compile this properly in Overleaf. However, it does not compile properly on my Linux Mint 21 operating system. Commented Dec 9, 2022 at 10:04
  • Your document works without error in texlive 2020, 2021 and 2022 pdflatex. Show the full log you get for that file. Commented Dec 9, 2022 at 10:11
  • @DavidCarlisle I have added the error log. I am using pdflatex. Thank you for your attention. Commented Dec 9, 2022 at 10:37
  • no, add the full log so it shows the paths to all packages used. The specific errors are just arbitrary, you are (somewhere) loading the wrong code. Commented Dec 9, 2022 at 10:45

Your log shows

(./longdivision.sty

So you are using a local longdivision.sty not the one from texlive, which for you would be

(/usr/local/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/longdivision/longdivision.sty

if you delete (or rename) the local file, the document should run without error.
