Get the remainder from divison.

14 posts in this topic

I don't know of a command in autoit but if the value returned is not a integer is there a way to recieve the remainder. I need this for my new file compression include file witch counts the number of bytes to see if there are any left over that doesn't get merged with 2 other bytes.

You said, "if the value returned IS NOT A INTERGER, is there a way to recieve the remainder." Well... if a string is returned, how are you going to find the remainder? Oo.

$x = 11

$y = 5

$z = $x / y [2.2]

$z = Int($z) [2]

$y * $z = 10

$x - 10 = remainder


Who else would I be?

thanx. Can you elaborate on how this works even because it's after 10 pm and my brain is half way dead.

Or use Mod(), since that is what Mod() does.

Really? I haven't read much on mod. Thanks, Valik.

I usualy learn about those things just by trying it and seeing what it does but if it just gives me some crazy thing that I can't figure out and I say wtf I go do research.

Do any of you know some good compression methods. I am merging every 3 bytes into 2 bytes where the 2nd one unlocks the first two. The remaining bytes are discarded and get two stay. The file header contains that info so the decompresser knows wich ones are remaining and don't need to be decompressed it to what it's not supposed to be. But it only compresses it to 2/3 the original I think. I am just guessing around. 11:00 PM you know?

Ah, my eye lids are getting heavy. Huh? Oh. Back to the subject.

So anyway I want it to go down to 10% of the original.

@guido, Text or binary [or both]?

Are you compressing a binary file [exe, com, jpg] or a simple text file [au3, bat, txt, ini]?

If written in AutoIt, it's text only since AutoIt would have no way to re-inflate a binary file.

I was going to suggest an external app according to whether or not he was doing binary.
