`POPPAR`

— Parity of the number of bits set*Description*:`POPPAR(I)`

returns parity of the integer`I`

, i.e. the parity of the number of bits set (’1’ bits) in the binary representation of`I`

. It is equal to 0 if`I`

has an even number of bits set, and 1 for an odd number of ’1’ bits.*Standard*:Fortran 2008 and later

*Class*:Elemental function

*Syntax*:`RESULT = POPPAR(I)`

*Arguments*:`I`Shall be of type `INTEGER`

.*Return value*:The return value is of type

`INTEGER`

and of the default integer kind.*Example*:program test_population print *, popcnt(127), poppar(127) print *, popcnt(huge(0_4)), poppar(huge(0_4)) print *, popcnt(huge(0_8)), poppar(huge(0_8)) end program test_population
