C <stdlib.h> - div_t structure type



The C <stdlib.h> div_t is a structure to represent both the quotient and the remainder of the division of the integral numerator by integral denominator. This is the type returned by div() function.

In the <stdlib.h> header file, it is defined as follows:

struct div_t { int quot; int rem; };

or 

struct div_t { int rem; int quot; };

Example:

The example below shows the usage of <stdlib.h> div_t type.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
 
int main (){
  div_t result = div(50, 17);

  printf("div(50, 17) gives quotient = %d and remainder = %d\n",
         result.quot, result.rem);
  
  return 0;
}

The output of the above code will be:

div(50, 17) gives quotient = 2 and remainder = 16
