[Tutor] How to test for a remainder from division

Thanks for all the help, I guessed that there would be a module out
there providing a function to do this but wanted to go through the
process as a learning exercise. The modulus operator was just what I was
looking for, I had been trying to check for a difference between the
division and the floor division - a bit of a long winded way of doing
things. Here is the final code I have come up with, any comments?
# A program to determine whether a year is a leap year or not
# Function that accepts a year as input and returns true if it is a leap
year, false if it is not
if year % 4 == 0 and (year % 100 != 0 or year % 400 == 0):
# Main program logic
year = raw_input("What year? ")
year = int(year)
print year, "is a leap year."
print year, "is not a leap year"
