# modulo

symmetric arithmetic remainder modulo m

# pmodulo

positive arithmetic remainder modulo m

### Calling Sequence

```i=modulo(n,m)
i=pmodulo(n,m)```

n,m

integers

### Description

`modulo` computes ```i= n (modulo m)``` i.e. remainder of `n` divided by `m` (`n` and `m` integers).

i = n - m .* int (n ./ m). Here the answer may be negative if `n` or `m` are negative.

`pmodulo` computes ```i = n - m .* floor (n ./ m)```, the answer is positive or zero.

### Examples

```n=[1,2,10,15];m=[2,2,3,5];
modulo(n,m)

modulo(-3,9)
pmodulo(-3,9)```
