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 http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/cody/problems/234-project-euler-problem-3-largest-prime-factor, 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!
