Hi group,

Im sure this is simple to do, but Ive just been looking through the python docs
and the archive of this mailing list and cant find what Im after.

I just want to know if a number is even or not.

I've had a look at the math package but that doesnt seem to have anything this
simple in it.

I thought something like

>>> if 10 div 2 == 0 : print 'even'
>>> else : print 'odd'

but obviously that doesnt work.

Sorry for such a basic question, but I really cant find out how to do this.

Kind regards
