the Operator % (modular division) return a erroneous result.

Reproduce code:
 $a = 63522;
 $b = 62186;
 echo "a = 63522\n";
 echo "b = 62186\n";
 echo $num."\n";
 $mod = ($a*$b) % 65536;
 echo "mod = $mod";

Expected result:
 $a = 63522;
 $b = 62186;
 $num = $a*$b;
 echo $num."\n";
 $p = $num/65536;
 echo (int)$p."\n";
 $num = $num-((int)$p*65536);
 echo "re-mod = $num";

63522 * 61826 is greater than the largest possible value for an integer on a 32-bit system (2147483647).

In order to work with values of this size you must either use the bcmath or gmp functions, or upgrade to a 64-bit processor.
