The \ mathematical operator performs INTEGER division on a numerical value.


Syntax

return_value = number \ divisor


Description

  • Number value can be any literal or variable numerical type.
  • Divisor (second value) must not be a value of 0 to .5. This will create a "Division by zero" error! due to CINT rounding.
  • Return values will be INTEGER or LONG value types only.
  • Rounding is done to the closest EVEN integer or long integer value.
  • Use the / integer division operator for SINGLE or DOUBLE floating decimal point return values.
  • Division and multiplication operations are performed before addition and subtraction in Qbasic's order of operations.


Example: Displays how floating decimal point values are rounded to the closest even integer value.

PRINT 0.5 \ 1 PRINT 1.5 \ 1 PRINT 2.5 \ 1 PRINT 3.5 \ 1 PRINT 4.5 \ 1 PRINT 5.5 \ 1

0 2 2 4 4 6
