Function

NSDecimalDivide(_:_:_:_:)

Divides one decimal value by another.

Declaration

func NSDecimalDivide(_ result: UnsafeMutablePointer<Decimal>, _ leftOperand: UnsafePointer<Decimal>, _ rightOperand: UnsafePointer<Decimal>, _ roundingMode: NSDecimalNumber.RoundingMode) -> NSDecimalNumber.CalculationError

Discussion

Divides leftOperand by rightOperand and stores the quotient, possibly rounded off according to roundingMode, in result. If rightOperand is 0, returns NSDivideByZero.

For explanations of the possible return values and rounding modes, see NSDecimalAdd(_:_:_:_:).

Note that repeating decimals or numbers with a mantissa larger than 38 digits cannot be represented precisely.
