    overloading the division operator with Integer Class

    I have an exercise to work on from a book. I have to overload some operators for a HugeInteger Class. I am having problems figuring out the division. The numbers are stored in an integer array. I am having trouble figuring out how to do division manually. Any tips that would get me started?

    So you don't know how to do long division by hand?

    I understand the method provided by the link but what I would like to know is if its possible to do the division using one digit from the divisor at a time because in the integer class each digit in a separate position in the array.

    I have an idea of where I can start but it would require the overloading of a few more operators. I could use the relational operators to determine when the divident is larger than the divisor then basically try to emulate the long division procedure with code. Hope it works.
