|Description:||Returns the parity of an integer.|
|Class:||Elemental function; Generic|
|Arguments:||I must be of type integer.|
|Results:||The result type is
the same as I. If there are an odd number of
1 bits in the binary representation of the
integer I, the result value is 1. If there are an even number, the
result value is zero.
The model for the interpretation of an integer value as a sequence of bits is shown in Section D.3.
If the value of I is B'0...00011010110', the value of POPPAR(I) is 1.
