/

The / or slash is used in a Pascal program to perform division. The results are a real value. If you want integer type value then use the div operator, round or trunc function . If you want know remainder use mod.

 A := 3 / 4;

returns 0.75 if a is real (if a is integer-type then get error:Incompatible types).

The value on the right side of the slash must not be zero, or a division by zero error occurs. This can be caught through use of a try .. finally or try .. except block.


Symbols: * (asterisk):= (becomes): (colon)= (equal); — > (greater than)< (less than)- (minus)<> (not equal). (period)+ (plus); (semi colon)/ (slash)
