//by Richard Russell, March 2014//\\ \\ The **parity** of an integer is determined by the number of set (i.e. **1**) bits in its binary representation. If there are an even number of set bits the parity is **even** and if there are an odd number of set bits the parity is **odd**. So for example %00100000 has odd parity and %00100010 has even parity.\\ \\ The function below can be used to discover the parity of a 32-bit integer, it returns 0 for even parity and 1 for odd parity:\\ | //by Richard Russell, March 2014//\\ \\ The **parity** of an integer is determined by the number of set (i.e. **1**) bits in its binary representation.
