**div**

ger division
SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h>
div_t div(int numerator, int denominator);
ldiv_t ldiv(long numerator, long denominator);
lldiv_t lldiv(long long numerator, long long denominator);
#include <inttypes.h>
imaxdiv_t imaxdiv(intmax_t numerator, intmax_t denominator);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see **feature_test_macros(7)**):
lldiv():
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99
DESCRIPTION
The div() function computes the value numerator/denominator and returns
the quotient and remainder in a structure named div_t that contains two
integer members (in unspecified order) named quot and rem. The quo-
tient is rounded toward zero. The result satisfies quot*denomina-
tor+rem = numerator.
The ldiv(), lldiv(), and imaxdiv() functions do the same, dividing num-
bers of the indicated type and returning the result in a structure of
the indicated name, in all cases with fields quot and rem of the same
type as the function arguments.
RETURN VALUE
The div_t (etc.) structure.
ATTRIBUTES
Multithreading (see **pthreads(7)**)
The div(), ldiv(), lldiv(), and imaxdiv() functions are thread-safe.
CONFORMING TO
SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89. C99. The functions lldiv() and imaxdiv() were added
in C99.
EXAMPLE
After
div_t q = div(-5, 3);
the values q.quot and q.rem are -1 and -2, respectively.
