hallo there,
                if i had a for loop like this (see below) how would i get it to check to see if the value of i was a odd number?

for(i=0;i < 4; i++)
{
 if(i is odd)
 {
   do this code;
 }
}

Cheers

Jack

if( i % 2 = 1 )
{
...
}

the % sign is the modulo arithmetic operator, and means "the remainder when divided by"
