Sorry again, the infinite loop was cause by my leaving out initializations
for x, y, and r.
Clear[a, b, xgcd]
xgcd[0, 0] = {0, 0, 1};
xgcd[0, b_] = {Abs@b, 0, Sign@b};
xgcd[a_, 0] = {Abs@a, Sign@a, 0};
xgcd[aa_, bb_] :=
Module[{a = Abs@aa, b = Abs@bb, x = 1, y = 0, r = 0, s = 1, c, q},
While[b != 0, {c, q} = {Mod[a, b], Quotient[a, b]};
{a, b, r, s, x, y} = {b, c, x - q*r, y - q*s, r, s}];
{a, x*Sign@aa, y*Sign@bb}]
xgcd[2, 3]
{1, -1, 1}
