Description (last modified by )
Add __floordiv__
to the coercion model for RingElement
and change __floordiv__
to _floordiv_
where applicable.
This does not change any semantics of floor division, but it does fix floor division in a few cases where coercion is involved. It also fixes various segmentation faults like
sage: R.<x> = QQbar[] sage: int(1) // x ...
Finally, we also implement __itruediv__
, which was forgotten when adding __truediv__
.

According to the "principle of least surprise", supporting floordiv for finite fields looks suspicious
sage: ZZ(5) // ZZ(3) 1 sage: GF(7)(5) // GF(7)(3) 4
If this is just an alias of division, why do we need it?

Replying to vdelecroix:
According to the "principle of least surprise", supporting floordiv for finite fields looks suspicious
That's outside the scope of this ticket. This ticket only implements coercion for __floordiv__
, it doesn't otherwise change the semantics of floor division.

All right. Hope this will be fixed with #15260.
