Is there a pretty way to do long division in Math? I'm imagining something like

4 longdiv 324 81

As it is, I'm using the | in quotes (otherwise it turns into an or) and an overline for the dividend numbers (324 in this example). The result is kind of clunky, though.

Not that I know of. The best I can come up with is:

stack { 4 # {} }
stack { ")" overline 324 #
alignr 81 }

... which displays as:

long division

As you say, "clunky."
