DIV(3) Linux Programmer's Manual DIV(3)NAME
div, ldiv, lldiv, imaxdiv - compute quotient and remainder of an inte‐
div_t div(int numerator, int denominator);
ldiv_t ldiv(long numerator, long denominator);
lldiv_t lldiv(long long numerator, long long denominator);
imaxdiv_t imaxdiv(intmax_t numerator, intmax_t denominator);

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.
The div_t (etc.) structure.
Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
The div(), ldiv(), lldiv(), and imaxdiv() functions are thread-safe.
SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89. C99. The functions lldiv() and imaxdiv() were added
div_t q = div(-5, 3);
the values q.quot and q.rem are -1 and -2, respectively.
