C rounds toward the nearest integer and Python rounds down. The behavior is
consistent in each case.

| Hi,
|
| can anybody help with the following problem?
|
| In C++
|
| i = 5 / 10 and
| i = -5 / 10 both have the same result 0.
|
| In python
|
| i = 5 / 10 gives me 0 as expected, but
| i = -5 / 10 gives -1 as result.
|
| Is this a feature or a bug? I remember Delphi gave me the same result as
| C++.
|
| TIA,
| Frank
