imaxdiv_t imaxdiv(intmax_t numer, intmax_t denom);
[CX] The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1-2008 defers to the ISO C standard.
The imaxdiv() function shall compute numer / denom and numer % denom in a single operation.
The imaxdiv() function shall return a structure of type imaxdiv_t, comprising both the quotient and the remainder. The structure shall contain (in either order) the members quot (the quotient) and rem (the remainder), each of which has type intmax_t.
If either part of the result cannot be represented, the behavior is undefined.
No errors are defined.
