Problem 1253. Infinite precision division

Develop a function that will divide a very very large integer numerator, supplied to function as a string (e.g., '12233344445555566666677777778888888899999999') by a reasonably sized integer or float, supplied as a number.

Return integer part of quotient as text (leading zeros acceptable), and remainder as a number.

Inspired by my initial misapprehension of failure of simple solution at one of the test cases of Doug Hull's, and dedicated to those willing to code 'the wrong way around' any problem.

I look forward to not understanding arcane code involving either/both bsxfun and arrayfun! I'm talking to you, @bmtran, Alfnie, et al!
