Hi All,
Can anybody please tell me what is an even loop and what is an odd loop?

Please also tell me what is meant by an invariant language.

I don't have any idea about even or odd loop.But,i once gone through invariance in Wiki. I think it might be helpful for you.

Here is the link for that Wiki page.

I'm not familiar with these terms, and couldn't find anything searching. Where did you find these, and what's the context in which they're being used?

(The Wikipedia link above talks about "invariant," but I don't know what an "invariant language" is.)

This is the only reference I could find for odd loops, though I'm not sure it has much relevance in a beginner Java forum. For what it's worth: http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Publications/tssyrjan/syrjanen-NMR06.pdf

Can you give the context these terms were used in? Maybe the author gave a lot of loops and was refering to the even and odd numbered examples?

From the programming context I asked the questions.
In a technical interview one of my friends was asked such questions.

We are asking for context because we have no idea what you are talking about -- these are not terms that are in common usage. We are not asking for context just to throw some speed bumps in your direction.

Without context, we have no idea what you are talking about. With no idea of what you are talking about, we can't even begin to address your question -- much less answer it.

In a technical interview one of my friends was asked such questions.


Maybe you could ask your friend for context. Just ask him/her what was the overall topic being discussed at the time. And what other topics were related to it.

I meant the context the terms were initially used in. Obviously, you asked them in a question in programming context.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
