The SDIV function performs a string division of two base 10-string numbers and rounds the result to 14 decimal places. It generally takes the form:
expr1 and expr2 are strings consisting of numeric characters, with either optionally including a decimal part.
Use the SDIV function with numbers that may exceed a valid range with standard arithmetic operators.
The PRECISION declaration has no effect on the value returned by SDIV.
Examples of use may be as:
A = 2 B = 3 CRT SDIV (A,B)
to display 0.66666666666666 to the screen, or
PRECISION 2 CRT SDIV (355,113)
to display 3.14159292035398.
