Don't understand:
int i, j, r;
r = i % j;

Commented:
 I donĀ“t know if I understand you correctly but are you trying to
do some divisions out of a string? A bit of code of what you are doing
may help.

Edited text of question.

Commented:
if you want real decimal numbers (like 1.23456...) you need to use floats. Either use floats instead of ints or cast them.

float fl_i,fl_j,q;
int int_i,int_j;

q=fl_i%fl_j;
or
q=((float) (int_i))/((float)(int_j));

Hope that's what you want,

Arnon David.

wolv491, please do not edit the question once a dialog has started, it makes it impossible to follow.

>> 5%2 does not =2 it equals 2 etc/etc
It should equal 1

We need to know what it is you are doing.  Can you explain this a little more clearly and/or post some code>

pehaps you are mixing up / and %.

/ does division and returns the quotient.  when deailing with ints, it returns only the integer portion fo the quotient, like

5/2 = 2
6/2 = 3
7/2 = 3
8/2 = 4

% does division and returns the remainder.  like

5%2 = 1
6%2 = 0
7%2 = 1

5%3 = 2
6%3 = 0
7%3 = 1
8%3 = 2
9%3 = 0
