But there is no trivial way to make a flooring division, which is the
complementary operation of mod.

The basic pattern of decomposing X into An+B where A,B are integers and B
is taken from a finite set, is typically done in two ways, one being done
with % and / and int, and the other being done with mod and / and floor.
But floor is missing. If you use mod with int then you are getting results
not consistent with the usual X=An+B assumption, which is not nice.

Or is floor available under another name?
