in reply to phi div by 0 error

Put this print statement in the second for loop:

print "Evens = $Evens, Odds = $Odds\n";

and you’ll see that on the sixth iteration, $Evens is 10 and $Odds is 11 — both referring to uninitialised elements of array @list. So the division becomes 0 / 0, which gives the error.

hdb has shown how to fix this.

Hope that helps,
