i dont know MEL, but I know C++, so:

cant u divide a number by 2, then store the result in a char with 8 places, then scan the char, if the char has a dot in it then its odd, if not its even.

In MEL - no . . . . MEL is a much easier language than C++, although C++ undoubtably has more power, and more bells and whistles, so to speak.

you've done it right by using the modulus command. If you get nothing back then it's even (i think! it's a bit early in the morning for maths! )
