    Yes...yes....but tht will not compile with a windows compiler like VC++......its dos based.....

    Many people ask questions specific to VC++ and the like......to do what you are doing there in windows you cannot use stuff like dos.h

    What's the point? No one looks at it anyway. You have to make it pop up or something whenever you go to the board.

    Its much easier to point to a compilation containing an answer involving many lines of code than to [re]write it a million times.

    An FYI, people do actually read it. I've had a fair amount of feedback; Its just that there are still a lot of people that obviously dont.

    Ok, some people use it, I have on occasions, but it seems that most people, especially ones who are new to the board, don't even think about looking at the faq.

    Monday is my last final and I am supposed to be writing a paper on Fiber Optics right now (better quit delaying...). I will begin my file I/O tut next week. Should have it by the end of the week...
