A Modded Pacal Triangle

As you generate very large Pascal Triangles, the numbers quickly get out of control. If you are planning on modding the values after obtaining them, why not mod them first?

Here you see an example of doing a mod5 before writing the number down... So, for example, the middle element on Row#4 is 1 because (3+3)%5 = 6%5 = 1... Now, you can use the number 1 for further rows instead of the original number 6.
