Checking a Number for Palindromic Behavior

Thanks to everyone who helped with my query on reversing integers. I 
have one more simple problem I'm having trouble solving. I want to check 
a number for palindromic behavior (reading the same backwards and 
forwards). So if I have an integer 1457 it can tell me this is not the 
same from both ends but 1551 is. I think the simplest way would be to 
work inwards from both ends checking digits for equality, but I don't 
know enough (yet) to do this.

All help is much appreciated.

Benjamin
