hi all

i can find the length of a string

String s = "mystringodd";

can someone show me how i can then see if the string conains an even number of characters

e.g String s contains 11 chars

whati want to do is see if String s is even, if not i need to append a 0 to make it even, so string s becomes this 0mystringodd

can anyone help me ou with this

many thanks
