Determine if an integer is divisible by

9 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I have an app which iterates a counter in an INI file on each run. I know the app runs every minute. I want to fire up a specific function if its the 10th minute. So the counter at that time would be 10, then 20 etc. There is no limit to how large the counter would go.

I am trying to figure out how I can determine whether counter is divisible by 10 with an integer as the result rather than a floating point.

Any suggestions? :P

Thanks.

Can you devide the number by 10 and then use IsInt () to find out if the number is an integer?

EDIT Maybe I am not clear what you are trying to do - can you provide an example?

This is typically what the Mod function is used for. Mod returns the remainder of a division operation. So to do something every 10th time when your operation counter is $i use:

If Mod( $i, 10) = 0 Then
    ;;; your code here
EndIf

That is so much shorter than my attemp - I always pick the hard way or the longest way.

If IsInt($i/$x) Then
Should work as well.

True, in a language that uses variants like AutoIt does... but not in strongly-typed languages (where variables are declared as Int, Real etc)... Mod is a pretty universal, CS101, solution to the problem.

Yeah, I definately see you're point now that I'm playing with 1 or 2 other languages at the moment.
