Do an arithmetic operation
This action takes two variables (that should contain integer values only) and performs an arithmetic operation (such as addition, subtraction…) with their values.
|Property Name||Data Type||Description|
|LeftVariable||VarName||Indicates the name of the left variable: its value will be read and “put before” the operator. See below. May be directly an integer and not a variable name.|
|Operation||TArithmOperator||Tells the package which arithmetic operation it should execute. A list of possible operations to perform is available by pressing the Down button. See below.|
|ResultVar||VarName||The variable that will store the result of the operation. For example %MYRESULT%.|
|RightVariable||VarName||Indicates the name of the right variable: its value will be read and “put after” the operator. See below. May be directly an integer and not a variable name.|
The package will evaluate the operation like this:
Left Variable Operator Right Variable
For example, consider the left variable %LEFT% set to “6”, the right variable %RIGHT% set to “4” and the operation is a multiplication: the resulting expression will be 6 x 4. The package will then store “24” in the ResultVar.
To simplify we will use %LEFT% and %RIGHT% to represent the values of the variables specified by LeftVariable and RightVariable.
|cDoAbsolute||Returns an absolute value||Only LeftVariable is used.||If %LEFT% is set to “-4”, the result will be “4”.|
|cDoAddition||Standard addition||Two variables required.||If %LEFT% is set to “8” and %RIGHT% to “4” the result will be 8+4 = “12”.|
|cDoIntDivision (div in Pascal)||Integer division: this is the value of %LEFT% / %RIGHT% rounded in the direction of zero to the nearest integer.||Two variables required. RightVariable should not be set to 0!||If %LEFT% is set to “8” and %RIGHT% to “4” the result will be 8⁄4 = “2”.|
|cDoMultiplication||Standard multiplication||Two variables required.||If %LEFT% is set to “8” and %RIGHT% to “4” the result will be 8x4 = “32”.|
|cDoRemainder (mod in Pascal)||Returns the remainder obtained by dividing its operands. In other words, ||Two variables required.||If %LEFT% is set to “8” and %RIGHT% to “3” the result will be 8 mod 3 = “2”.|
|cDoSubstraction||Standard substraction||Two variables required.||If %LEFT% is set to “2” and %RIGHT% to “3” the result will be 2-3 = “-1”.|
You may also directly enter an integer as the value for LeftVariable and RightVariable without using a real variable. For example, you can directly enter “3” for RightVariable.
Note that operations are done using 64-bit integers (numbers in
[-2^63;2^63[). For instance you could use this custom action to translate the value returned by the Get Free Disk Space custom action from bytes to MB or GB.
