I wrote the following bit of code

static APInt FloorOfQuotient(APInt a, APInt b) {

unsigned bits = a.getBitWidth();

APInt q(bits, 1), r(bits, 1);

APInt::sdivrem(a, b, q, r);

**errs() << “sdivrem(” << a << ", " << b << “) = (” << q << ", " << r << “)\n”;**

if (r == 0)

return q;

else {

if ((a.sgt(0) && b.sgt(0)) ||

(a.slt(0) && b.slt(0)))

return q;

else

return q - 1;

}

}

but sometimes see surprising results. Here are examples:

sdivrem(9, -2) = (-4, 1)

sdivrem(9, -3) = (-3, 0)

sdivrem(10, -3) = (-3, 1)

sdivrem(38, 2) = (19, 0)

sdivrem(29, 1) = (29, 0)

**sdivrem(-8, -1) = (-8, 0)**

**sdivrem(-9, -1) = (-9, 0)**

What’s up with the last two?

Am I doing something wrong (again)?

Thanks,

Preston

Subject: [LLVMdev] APInt::sdivrem error?

APInt q(bits, 1), r(bits, 1);

The APInt constructor has three arguments, the last one being whether or not the value is to be treated as signed. It defaults to false, as you appear to have just verified.

OK, the code for sdivrem in APInt.h is wrong.

Here’s what’s written:

static void sdivrem(const APInt &LHS, const APInt &RHS,

APInt &Quotient, APInt &Remainder) {

if (LHS.isNegative()) {

if (RHS.isNegative())

APInt::udivrem(-LHS, -RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

else

APInt::udivrem(-LHS, RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

Quotient = -Quotient;

Remainder = -Remainder;

} else if (RHS.isNegative()) {

APInt::udivrem(LHS, -RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

Quotient = -Quotient;

} else {

APInt::udivrem(LHS, RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

}

}

Here’s what it should be:

static void sdivrem(const APInt &LHS, const APInt &RHS,

APInt &Quotient, APInt &Remainder) {

if (LHS.isNegative()) {

if (RHS.isNegative())

APInt::udivrem(-LHS, -RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

else **{**

**APInt::udivrem(-LHS, RHS, Quotient, Remainder);**

**Quotient = -Quotient;**

**Remainder = -Remainder;**

**}**

} else if (RHS.isNegative()) {

APInt::udivrem(LHS, -RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

Quotient = -Quotient;

} else {

APInt::udivrem(LHS, RHS, Quotient, Remainder);

}

}

What should I do to submit the correction?

Thanks,

Preston

Send a patch to llvm-commits, preferably including a testcase in

unittests/ADT/APIntTest.cpp . See
