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.


Examples

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
