When dividing 2 integers, SilkTest will round down.

When dividing 2 integers, SilkTest will round down.

When using the division operator against two integers, SilkTest will always round down to the nearest int.  See example below:-

[-] testcase division2() appstate none
    [ ] REAL rResult
    [ ] rResult = 1 / 2
    [ ] print(rResult)

The above will provide the following result:-

[-] Testcase division - Passed
    [ ] 0.000000

However, if you cast the integer values to REAL, the calculation will return the correct value. 

[-] testcase division() appstate none
    [ ] REAL rResult
    [ ] rResult = [REAL]1/[REAL]2
    [ ] print(rResult)

The above test will result in the following:-

[-] Testcase division - Passed
    [ ] 0.500000
