Decimal division with user-specified precision.
decimal-divide($arg1 as xs:decimal?, $arg2 as xs:decimal?, $precision as xs:integer) ➔ xs:decimal?
The number of digits required in the result
Notes on the Saxon implementation
Available since Saxon 8.0.
This function performs a decimal division to a user-specified precision. The value of
the first argument is divided by the second argument, and the result is returned to the
number of decimal places indicated by the third argument. The exact result is rounded
towards zero. For example,
decimal-divide(100, 30, 2) returns
0.33. (The default for decimal division in Saxon using the
div operator is to return max(18, s1, s2) decimal places in the
result, where s1 is the scale of the first operand and s2 the scale of the
The function returns an empty sequence if either operand is an empty sequence.
