Hello. if anybody has a minute, I was looking for a way to see if one integer divides evenly inot a larger interval (ie. with nothing after the decimal). I was thinking parseInt and catch an exception on it but that doesn't do it. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thank you very much for reading this.

How about using the modulus (%) operator?
