How about something analagous to fmod(double, double)
and modf(double, double*)?

A while back before I knew about Boost, I wrote a non-templated
rational number class that had member functions:

    int trunc() const
      #if defined(_MSC_VER)
        return div(num, den).quot;
        return std::div(num, den).quot;

    rational modr(rational* iptr) const
        return rational(*this) -= (*iptr = trunc());

    rational rmod(const rational& rhs) const
        rational temp(*this);
        temp /= rhs;
        int i_part = temp.trunc();
        temp -= ipart;
        return temp;

(OK, they should be free functions, not member functions;
but you get the idea.)

Is that what you want?
