template< typename T1 , typename T2 , typename T3 = integral_c<int,1> , ... , typename Tn = integral_c<int,1> > struct divides { typedefunspecifiedtype; };

Returns the quotient of its arguments [1].

#include "boost/mpl/divides.hpp"

Parameter | Requirement | Description |
---|---|---|

`T1, T2, .., Tn` | A model of Integral Constant |

Expression | Expression type | Precondition | Semantics | Postcondition |
---|---|---|---|---|

`typedef divides<t1,t2,..,tn>::type quot;` | A model of Integral Constant | `t2::value != 0, t3::value != 0, .., tn::value != 0` | Equivalent to `typedef integral_c<typeof(t1::value / t2::value .. / tn::value), t1::value / t2::value .. / tn::value > quot;` |

Amortized constant time.

typedef divides< integral_c<short,-10>, integral_c<long,3> >::type quot; BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(quot::value == -3)); BOOST_MPL_ASSERT_IS_SAME(quot::value_type, long);

[1] The `divides`

metafunction can be (and is expected to be) specialized by user to work on user-defined types that do not satisfy the Integral Constant requirements. The requirements listed here are the ones imposed by the default implementation.

Metafunctions, `multiplies`

, `modulus`

, `plus`

, `minus`

, `negate`
