Description:   This program gets 2 inputs from the user.

                      It divides them by using the DIVIDE verb. 

                      a/b is computed and stored in c.

                      The unedited result is accessible in c.

                      We move c to e-c, where the edit characters are accessible.

                      Keep in mind that the variable e-c makes use of the - edit character.

                      The e-c will always be exhibited with result.
