modulus operator as implemented by your C compiler\. This
operator is not as well defined for negative operands\, but
it will execute faster\.
I don't know if the technical description correctly describes what
perl is doing, but it says that it should "give you direct access to
the modulus operator as implemented by your C compiler." On both my
Sun WorkShop Compilers 4.2 (SunOS5.6) and my gcc version egcs-2.91.66
-1 % 2 = -1
while perl gives me
-1 % 2 = 1
Doesn't too. Perl knows both ways to skin a modulus, depending on
whether C<use integer> is in scope. Try it.
