Description

Mod performs the modulo operation on two numeric values, dividing a numerator (or dividend) by a denominator or (divisor) and returns the remainder of the division rather than the usual quotient.

Example

This example shows that ten apples split between seven people results in each person receiving one apple with three left over. (You can't split 3 whole apples between 7 people!)

Play with the numbers to see the effect Mod has, eg. change the number of people to 2.

Function Main () 
 
    Local apples:Int = 10 
    Local people:Int = 7 
     
    Print "Each person gets " + (apples / people) + " apple(s);" 
     
    Local leftover:Int = apples Mod people 
     
    Print leftover + " apple(s) are left over." 
 
End 

This example shows how Mod can be used to limit a range of values, such as keeping an angle between 0 and 360 degrees. As it passes through 360 degrees and beyond, the angle will always be displayed in the range 0 - 360:

Function Main () 
 
    For Local angle:Int = 350 To 370 
        Print angle Mod 360 
    Next 
     
End
