NAME
div, ldiv, lldiv, imaxdiv  compute quotient and remainder of
an integer 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():

_ISOC99_SOURCE  _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
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 quotient is rounded toward zero.
The result satisfies
quot*
denominator+
rem =
numerator.
The
ldiv(),
lldiv(),
and
imaxdiv()
functions do the same,
dividing numbers 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.

CONFORMING TO
POSIX.12001, POSIX.12008, C89, C99, SVr4, 4.3BSD.
The functions
lldiv()
and
imaxdiv()
were added in C99.
EXAMPLES
After
div_t q = div(5, 3);
the values q.quot and q.rem are 1 and 2, respectively.
