The C <stdlib.h> ldiv_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 ldiv() function.

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

struct ldiv_t { long quot; long rem; };

or 

struct ldiv_t { long rem; long quot; };

Example:

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

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

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

The output of the above code will be:

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