Andrew David (akdavid at ultronics.co.uk), Software Manager, Ultronics Ltd, Cheltenham says:

This division routine uses the standard binary long-division algorithm. The loop iterates once for each bit in the numerator, so it goes round 24 times. For each loop the numerator (sorry, but I can never remember which is the dividend and the divisor - I guess the divisor is the denominator, but I'd hate to get it wrong) is left shifted 1 bit into the remainder, then the remainder is compared with the denominator. If the remainder is greater than the denominator, the denominator is subtracted from the remainder and a 1 is shifted into the quotient, otherwise a 0 is shifted into the quotient. If you can't see how the routine works, try running through an example on paper, in binary, then think about how you'd write the routine.
