## How to find odd/even numbers in perl

(OP)
Hi!

How to find a given number is odd or even,any help is appriciated

### RE: How to find odd/even numbers in perl

Hello thendal,
Divide by 2 and see if there is anything after the decimal with the 'modulus' operator, %

#!perl
$value = 4;$odd_num = $value % 2; if ($odd_num) { print "$value is odd\n"; } else { print "$value is even\n"; }

$value = 5;$odd_num = $value % 2; if ($odd_num) { print "$value is odd\n"; } else { print "$value is even\n"; }

'hope this helps....

keep the rudder amid ship and beware the odd typo

### RE: How to find odd/even numbers in perl

You could compact that a bit:

my $value = 4; if ($value%2) {print "$value is even";} else {print "$value is odd";}
