I apologize if this has been addressed previously. I haven't found
anything in the archives, though I feel as though it surely must be there
somewhere. I am wondering if there is a way to create a new variable that
takes on a value if another variable is an even or an odd number. For
example, can you do something like this:
ge newvar = 1 if oldvar is even
If this has made its way thru the list before, perhaps someone can suggest
better search keywords for the archives? Thanks.
causes -z- to be equal to -x- modulo -y-, ie the remainder of -x- if
divided by -y-. So, if you type
then odd will be 1 for odd -x- and 0 for even -x-.
I hope this helps.
