Description:
Operator / (Divide) returns the quotient of a dividend and divisor.

Neither operand is modified in any way. Unlike with integer division, float division by zero is safe to perform, the quotient will hold a special value representing infinity, converting it to a string returns something like "Inf" or "INF", exact text is platform specific.

This operator can be overloaded to accept user-defined types.

Examples:
Dim n As Double
Print n / 5
n = 6 / 2.3
Print n
Sleep

Output:
0
