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

Thanks in advance

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....

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";}


Sincerely,
