Integer Division

Just as the backslash (/) is the division operator, the forward slash () is the integer division operator. Use it when you need to divide numbers but require the result to be an integer.


Beware that the numbers are rounded before the division takes place. For that reason, I’ve never seen a need to use this operator with non-integer numbers.

  1. I thought that tis was the backslash:
    and this this the forward slash: / (into the reading direction)

    Then again, nothing surprises me nowadays, so if it turns out I’m wrong, so be it.
