**Routine**: iDIV

**Name**: Integer DIV routine

**Starting Address**: &9FFD

**Entry criteria**: Either IWA or FWA
contain the dividend. A contains the variable type (Floating-Point/Integer). The
Basic Text Pointer 2 points to an expression (the divisor) [e.g. "
A%"]

**Exit**: The IWA.= Quotient (Result, IWA =
IWA / Divisor-expression).

**Description**:

Call the Integer Division routine
to evaluate the Divisor-expression and perform the actual division.

Multiply the Result by the base (Base 2 - Binary) and add on any value needing to be added to the result. This is not done by the Integer Division routine due to time constraints, as the MOD routine does not need to perform these tasks in order to obtain its required remainder.

Push the sign-bit of the result to the 6502 stack, load X with &39 (to specify where the result is located), and call the end of the Integer multiplication routine to put the Result into the IWA, convert it to the correct sign, and to check the next operator to see if any further multiplication/division processing is required.
