This is difficult:/

The POSIX shell is only required to do signed long integer arithmetic.
"signed long" can be 32-bit.

awk may not provide precision more than a double ("... decimal-floating-constant token as specified
by the ISO C standard")

% gawk 'BEGIN {printf("%x", (0xffffffff80101234 % 0x100000000))}' /dev/null
80101000
