Consider this division in Python:
Python 3.1 (r31:73574, Jun 26 2009, 20:21:35) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> 2/2 1.0
Is this intended? I strongly remember earlier versions returning
int/int = int. What should I do? Is there a new division operator or must I always cast?
Now we will see solution for issue: Why does integer division yield a float instead of another integer?
Take a look at PEP-238: Changing the Division Operator
The // operator will be available to request floor division unambiguously.
