Divides two values and pushes the result as a floating-point (type F) or quotient (type int32) onto the evaluation stack.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
Divides two values to return a quotient or floating-point result.
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
value1 is pushed onto the stack.
value2 is pushed onto the stack.
value2 and value1 are popped from the stack; value1 is divided by value2.
The result is pushed onto the stack.
result = value1 div value2 satisfies the following conditions:
| result | = | value1 | / | value2 |, and:
sign(result) = +, if sign(value1) = sign(value2), or -, if sign(value1) ~= sign(value2)
The div instruction computes the result and pushes it on the stack.
Integer division truncates towards zero.
Division of a finite number by zero produces the correctly signed infinite value.
Dividing zero by zero or infinity by infinity produces the NaN (Not-A-Number) value. Any number divided by infinity will produce a zero value.
Integral operations throw ArithmeticException if the result cannot be represented in the result type. This can happen if value1 is the maximum negative value, and value2 is -1.
Integral operations throw DivideByZeroException if value2 is zero.
Note that on Intel-based platforms an OverflowException is thrown when computing (minint div -1). Floating-point operations never throw an exception (they produce NaNs or infinities instead).
The following Emit method overload can use the div opcode:
Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows XP SP2 x64 Edition, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
