if/then/else sentence

    Jan 27 2008 | 3:26 pm
    ( first at all, my English is not good. )
    I'm trying to do the following:
    if $i1 >= 13 then out=$i1-12 else $i1
    " out=$i1-12 "
    how can I do that?
    I just want numbers over 12 to be subtracted by 12.
    is it clear?
    the solution I find is using the i$2 with one more object with the $i1-12 expr, so...
    if $i1 >= 13 then $i2 else $i1
    where $i2 is "$i1-12"
    but... i'm sure there is a way to do this with one single "if sentence", isn't it?

      why not just do something like this - it seems easier to me:
      I'll have to admit that, with if statements, I probably use the
      "out2" bit more often than not.

      Depending on what you're doing (there was no info on the context of
      what this is for) you might just be looking for %12 (modulo 12) -
      this just gives you the remainder after dividing by 12.

      I would do it like this:

      thnks a lot.
      "Modulo operator" seems to be perfect.
