    timing

    I have a function which keeps getting accessed and I have a static int which keeps track of how many times the function is executed.

    How can I create a conditional if statement to say...

    IF iCount has ran a multiple of x times THEN
    ... Do some stuff

    ie) after 6 execution the statemetent is true, then 12, then 18, etc...

    thanx

    % is used for the modulo function of integers. The modulo function is the remainder of a division. Take 8/6. You'll get a remainder of 2 and 8%6 gives the same result. For 12/6, you have a remainder of 0. Thus, you have the right idea.
