That's backwards. $foo % 3 checks if $foo *isn't* divisible by 3. not $foo % 3 would deceptively check if is divisible by 3.

    OK, OK. :) And in this tiny corner of the universe, I'm pretending that a result of 0 means "Yes! It's divisible!". :)

    Your confusion was not my intention.

[Lady_Aleena]: Having to rewrite some parts of my site for mobile devices is such a pain in the butt.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: what editor are you using, on what platform?
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, geany on Debian jessie.
[shmem]: some experience with vim?
[Lady_Aleena]: None
[shmem]: I don't know geany, and don't know whether it has support for ctags.
[Lady_Aleena]: ctags?
[shmem]: ctags is a program which (recursively) extracts the symbols from source and stores them in a one-file database. This allows you to query the locations where these symbols (e.g. a subroutine name) are used anywhere in the source code tree...
[shmem]: ...from inside the editor.
[shmem]: apt-get install exuberant-ctags
