Operator \ (Integer divide)


Divides two Integer expressions

Syntax:
Usage:
result = lhs \ rhs

Parameters:
lhs
The left-hand side dividend expression.
rhs
The right-hand side divisor expression.

Return Value:
Returns the quotient of an Integer dividend and divisor.

Description:
Operator \ (Integer division) divides two Integer expressions and returns the result. Float numeric values are converted to Integer by rounding up or down, and the fractional part of the resulting quotient is truncated.

If the divisor (rhs) is zero (0), a division by zero error (crash) will be raised.

Neither of the operands are modified in any way.

This operator can be overloaded for user-defined types.

Examples:
Dim n As Double
Print n \ 5
n = 7 \ 2.6  '' => 7 \ 3  => 2.33333  => 2
Print n
n = 7 \ 2.4  '' => 7 \ 2 => 3.5 => 3
Print n
Sleep

Output:
0
2
3
