div(3C)			 Standard C Library Functions		       div(3C)

NAME
       div, ldiv, lldiv	- compute the quotient and remainder

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stdlib.h>

       div_t div(int numer, int	denom);

       ldiv_t ldiv(long	int numer, long	int denom);

       lldiv_t lldiv(long long numer, long long	denom);

DESCRIPTION
       The  div() function computes the	quotient and remainder of the division
       of the numerator	numer by the denominator denom.	It provides a well-de-
       fined  semantics	 for the signed	integral division and remainder	opera-
       tions, unlike the implementation-defined	semantics of the built-in  op-
       erations.   The sign of the resulting quotient is that of the algebraic
       quotient, and if	the division is	inexact, the magnitude of the  result-
       ing  quotient is	the largest integer less than the magnitude of the al-
       gebraic quotient. If the	result cannot be  represented, the behavior is
       undefined; otherwise, quotient *	denom +	remainder will equal numer.

       The  ldiv() and lldiv() functions are similar to	div(), except that the
       arguments and the members of the	returned structure are different.  The
       ldiv()  function	 returns  a structure of type ldiv_t and has type long
       int.  The lldiv() function returns a structure of type lldiv_t and  has
       type long long.

RETURN VALUES
       The  div()  function returns a structure	of type	div_t, comprising both
       the quotient and	remainder:

       int   quot;   /*quotient*/
       int   rem;    /*remainder*/

       The ldiv() function returns a structure of type ldiv_t and lldiv()  re-
       turns  a	 structure  of type lldiv_t, comprising	both the  quotient and
       remainder:

       long int	  quot;	  /*quotient*/
       long int	  rem;	  /*remainder*/
