I'm looking for the modulus algorithm. I'm trying to make a modulus function that operates on a base N number (represented as a string most likely) but haven't had any luck when searching for it. Links are welcome.

I don't suppose this would work for you in some form, would it?


int r = a - b * (int)( (double)a / b )

The modulus operation (as related to integers), works independently of the base.
