My question

What is the most efficent way to detect even numbers in java?

has been marked as a duplicate. It isn't - at least, it isn't a duplicate of the suggested question here:

How do I check if an integer is even or odd?

Which is actually C question, and not Java. Nor is it about optimisation, although optimisation (qua C) is mentioned a few times.

I agree. Reopened! – Doorknob Jun 7 '13 at 10:50

The other question may be about C rather than Java, but its accepted answer does seem to answer your question. It also mentions Java (though lacks the tag for it), which may explain why it was considered a potential duplicate in the first place. It should probably be reopened.

How does it seem to answer my question? Are the C and Java languages now simply interchangable? Furthermore, the answers i received differ largely from the given --c focussed-- answer given there. – bharal Jun 7 '13 at 9:07
@bharal Perhaps it's just a language thing. When I say it "seems" to answer your question I mean "I can see why somebody might think it answers your question". Anyway, somehow managed to post without actually saying I think your question should be reopened - added that in there. – Anthony Grist Jun 7 '13 at 9:11
Sorry, the just moved desks in the office and the people here keep it hot. I'm sweating like a buffalo and not having a bit of a huff, the seems on my part was petty. – bharal Jun 7 '13 at 9:14
@bharal for the question you asked, yes C and Java are interchangeable. Actually, the way you stated it I would say Java is interchangeable with Basic, Prolog, probably F# and especially MUMPS: "random question time - what would be the most performant manner to determine an even number using java, and why?..." – gnat Jun 7 '13 at 10:44
? the given answers to the question directly compete with the given performant-based answers to the C question, which challenges your opening statement. – bharal Jun 7 '13 at 10:46
