div
div(x, y) Ã·(x, y)
The quotient from Euclidean division. Computes x/y
, truncated to an integer.
Examples

Perform Euclidean division:
julia> div(10, 3) 3
This example performs Euclidean division of 10 by 3, resulting in the quotient 3.

Handle negative numbers:
julia> div(10, 3) 3
The
div
function can handle negative numbers as well. In this example, it computes the quotient of 10 divided by 3, resulting in 3.  Truncate decimal values:
julia> div(17, 5) 3
The
div
function truncates the decimal part of the division result. Here, 17 divided by 5 is 3.4, but the decimal part is discarded, resulting in the quotient 3.
Common mistake example:
julia> div(10, 0)
ERROR: DivideError: integer division error
In this example, division by zero is attempted, which is not allowed. It's important to ensure that the divisor (y
) is not zero to avoid such errors. Always make sure the divisor is a nonzero value when using the div
function.
