Linux 2.6 - man page for ldiv (linux section 3posix)

LDIV(P) 			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				  LDIV(P)

NAME
       ldiv, lldiv - compute quotient and remainder of a long division

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdlib.h>

       ldiv_t ldiv(long numer, long denom);
       lldiv_t lldiv(long long numer, long long denom);

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions shall compute the quotient and remainder of the division of the numerator
       numer by the denominator denom. If the division is inexact, the resulting quotient is  the
       long  integer (for the ldiv() function) or long long integer (for the lldiv() function) of
       lesser magnitude that is the nearest to the algebraic quotient. If the  result  cannot  be
       represented, the behavior is undefined; otherwise, quot * denom+rem shall equal numer.

RETURN VALUE
       The  ldiv() function shall return a structure of type ldiv_t, comprising both the quotient
       and the remainder. The structure shall include the following members, in any order:

	      long   quot;    /* Quotient */
	      long   rem;     /* Remainder */

       The lldiv() function shall return a structure of type lldiv_t, comprising  both	the  quo-
       tient and the remainder. The structure shall include the following members, in any order:

	      long long   quot;    /* Quotient */
	      long long   rem;	   /* Remainder */

ERRORS
