div and mod

June 7, 2010

After consideration and looking at what Rakudo actually does, I decided the right solution to the div and mod issue was to change them in the Spec. In particular, I see them as having one interesting use: with integer types, they can always return the same integer type as their result, because either’s result will never have greater magnitude than its operands. I’ve rewritten their definitions to correspondingly tighten them as only working on integer types.
