ldiv: compute quotient and remainder of a long division
PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.NAME
ldiv, lldiv  compute quotient and remainder of a long division
SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h>
ldiv_t ldiv(long numer, long denom);
lldiv_t lldiv(long long numer, long long denom);
DESCRIPTION
These functions shall compute the quotient and remainder of the division
of the numerator numer by the denominator
denom. If the division is inexact, the resulting quotient is
the long integer (for the ldiv() function) or
long long integer (for the lldiv() function) of lesser
magnitude that is the nearest to the algebraic quotient. If
the result cannot be represented, the behavior is undefined; otherwise,
quot
RETURN VALUE
The ldiv() function shall return a structure of type ldiv_t, comprising both the quotient and the remainder. The structure shall include the following members, in any order:

long quot; /* Quotient */ long rem; /* Remainder */
The lldiv() function shall return a structure of type lldiv_t, comprising both the quotient and the remainder. The structure shall include the following members, in any order:

long long quot; /* Quotient */ long long rem; /* Remainder */
ERRORS
No errors are defined.
