Hi Graham,

Sorry for butting in here (and I still haven't had much chance to really get started on following your progress yet), but I can answer this one for you.

I assume that \y is an integer variable, right?

Well, the MOD function is a bit like divide, but the result is the remainder.

So, \y MOD 2=0 when \y is even, but =1 when \y is odd.

8 MOD 3=2, 11 MOD 4=3, etc.
