using floats to compute modulo does not seem reasonable to me.
I only included this:
my $n = 534587;
print "even\n" if($n % 2 == 0); # modulo operator of possibly a flo
+at or possibly an integer (*)
- it is equivalent to the OP's "Most obvious (easiest) solution" (infact code-ninja used this exact example here: Re^2: A mod2 Machine.)
- it might actually be doing a (possibly comparatively slow) float operation because use integer was not used.
It probably had to go: float 534587 --> integer 534587 --> integer modulo operation on integer 534587
Whereas doing a proper integer bit test should be faster:
my $n = 534587;
print "even\n" if($n & 1 == 0); # checking LSB with Bitwise And on
