Why not just make a mod function?

Preceeding code not tested, but should work?
It's been a while since I wrote C code.

BTW, what is a u64 (unsigned 64bit integer) in C called?
Is there any uniform cross platform way to say it (like
u64 perhaps)?

u64 mod_64(u64 number, u64 modNum) {
    while (number > modNum) {
        number -= modNum;
    }
    return number;
}
