## Definition

Important

Divides two values and pushes the result as a floating-point (type `F`

) or quotient (type `int32`

) onto the evaluation stack.

#### Field Value

## Remarks

The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:

Format | Assembly Format | Description |
---|---|---|

5B | div | 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:
