chop($_=<>);$a=chop()=>print qq'\n$a: ',$a&1?'odd':'even' while $_;
The code that was previously here has been replaced. It didn't work.

    Perhaps it's me, but this doesn't seem to produce the expected results... It reports 'odd' for every digit except '1'.

      Yup. Actually Its worse then that. Try using a number with a zero in it. It stops at the zero. I guess I should have run it instead of just trusting that it would work. (I'll try to re-write it to make it work, and I'll post the current, bad, version here so that other's will understand the mistake.)
      chop($_=<>);print "\n$a: ",$a>>1?'odd':'even' while $a=chop; # The above snipit does not work. # When I posted it, I was thinking that the bit shift >> # would return the bit shifted off the end, but of course, # sanity eventualy prevailed and I realized that it does # not do that. (duh!) # Additionally, it has a bug in that it stops on the first # zero in the number. # # TEST TEST TEST!!!
