[Moved to DR at the October, 2012 meeting.]
Issue 614 adopted the corresponding C99 wording for 7.6.5 [expr.mul] paragraph 4,
...if the quotient a/b is representable in the type of the result, (a/b)*b + a%b is equal to a.
in an attempt to ensure that INT_MAX % -1 produces undefined behavior (because the result is not specified by the Standard). However, the new C draft makes the undefined behavior explicit:
If the quotient a/b is representable, the expression (a/b) * b + a%b shall equal a; otherwise, the behavior of both a/b and a%b is undefined.
Should C++ adopt similar wording?
Proposed resolution (February, 2012):
Change 7.6.5 [expr.mul] paragraph 4 as follows:
...If the second operand of / or % is zero the behavior is undefined. For integral operands the / operator yields the algebraic quotient with any fractional part discarded;81 if the quotient a/b is representable in the type of the result, (a/b)*b + a%b is equal to a.
