Div, Mod and variables

Div, Mod and variables

(OP)
Why dont DIV and MOD let you use variables? Im trying to do <real variable> DIV <constant number> but it says operand error.

Its just silly if you ask me! hehe.

RE: Div, Mod and variables

MOD wouldn't make any sense with a real variable, because the point of MOD is to return the remainder, while a real variable is designed to store the fraction....

If you want to get the remainder from a division of a real (or any other floating point) number is to move it into an integer first. Use the round/trunc etc. to get the right integer. If you want the effect of div, just divide with /, and then truncate.

Best wishes!

RE: Div, Mod and variables

Don't worry. I like stupid questions because they're easier to answer.... (and how many times have I got in a panic because 3 div 4 * 100 was't 75???)
