Bugs in REMAINDER Function (Updated)

Dear all,

Regarding Bugs in REMAINDER Function, I have opened a call with Oracle Support and they say "REMAINDER function works as intended and this is a documentation issue which requires minor clarification".

Oracle documentation has modified the text as follows:

"If n1 != 0, then the remainder is n2 - (n1*N) where N is the integer nearest n2/n1. If n2/n1 equals x.5, then N is the nearest even integer."

A bug (7236077) has also been logged.
