    Recruiting people for the FAQ (at gunpoint if neccessary)

    I'm going to need people who want to submit additions to the fact on the following (or any or subject you care to take the time to write up for that matter):

    a) File I/O - Text and binary with a couple of different methods would be preferable

    b) Quote: "everything on the FAQ board". Govtcheez? Care to start compiling?

    c) Common sorting method (and their pros and cons)

    d) Good site links (and any we should update cuz they're broken)

    Keep in mind that this is a FAQ list not a massive tutorial on everything under the sun... Unless someone wants to compile one. I'm sorry i cant devote much/any time to this right now. I wish i could be a bit more involved but i cant, so.... Anyone that wants to cover one of the above (or something else) just reply to this thread stating that you're all over it (and make sure someone else isn't on the same thing). Then just e-mail me what you got. I'll put it together and give it to the webmaster (who'll be overjoyed i'm sure; "Here, have more work." ).

    At gunpoint? Well, when you put it that way, how could I say no?

    The FAQ link in displaying a picture file points to Sunlight's uni page, which isn't up. I believe the new one's www.sunlightd.com/Windows

    Well you know what my time is like...

    but I can research all of the file I/O. I am already very familiar with data, but I would need to work on the binary.

    I will also do a faq on opening ports as files and writing to them. (I.E. How do I print... how do I gain access to a modem/serial port)

    It will all be ANSI compliant.

    I'm sure I can come up with something along the lines of "everything on the FAQ board" Nothing complex, just explaining how and why to do things.

    I can also cover the sorting parts if you want.

    i would be willing to help on the file I/O(binary please(straight C only)) since i do a hell of a lot of it, but i have no clue as to what questions to answer or what to really do.

    ::Edit:: how bout on Consol text color and getting the Arrow keys? i could do that i guess.

    I'll write an overview of what bitshifting/bit manip is, and at the end it can link to the tutorial I'm going to write at some point

    //edit: Is this good enough?

    Code:
    Bit Manipulation/Bit Shifting - Basic overview
    ================================================
    
    Bit Manip/Shifting is the process of taking data, and toying with
     the binary of it (the basic 1s and 0s that it's comprised of).
    
    Bit operations in C/C++ are carried out with the following operators:
    
           -----------------------------------------------------------
           |Operator          Definition                              |
           -----------------------------------------------------------|
           |  &        |    Bitwise AND (Not to be confused with &&)  |
           |  |        |    Bitwise OR (Not to be conused with ||)    |
           |  ^        |    XOR (Exclusive OR)                        |
           |  <<       |    Shift left                                |
           |  >>       |    Shift right                               |
           |  ~        |    Unary (One's compliment)                  |
           ------------------------------------------------------------

    Should I use big red letters or big bold red letters?
