|Long Division / Assembly Language Style
I am a little bit embarrassed that I can't figure this out on my own with pencil and paper; in fact, a lot embarrassed
What is the Algorithm for dividing one very large integer by another ?
I don't want to get too ridiculous on my first attempt at this, so I will toss out these sorts of values...
TWO UNSIGNED INTEGERS
In bits, that would be
- A Thirty-Four Byte Dividend
- A Seventeen Byte Divisor
I want to do this using All_Or_Mostly 8-Bit registers to the maximum extent possible.
- A 272 Bit Dividend
- And a 136 Bit Divisor
I am quite surprised that I couldn't find this question answered with a web search.
Can someone tell me what question to ask Google ?
For that matter, is there a better online community than this one for questions such as this one ?
I am totally fine if we start off learning how to do 16-bit division using 8-Bit regs and then move up to 24, 32, 40, 48 etc. dividend sizes
