    Heh, I have to wonder if it handled vowels, "th", and "sh" properly.

    Wrote my first line of code in 1982: BASIC on a 10 mghrtrz IBM PC. It booted from a 5 1/4" diskette. After that, it was REXX in '86. Then, I went straight to assembler in '88.

    It's been a while, obviously, but I think it did. I can't even remember what the rule for that is, now.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    $50 & $100 was worth more then than now.

    The question is: what mischief can a 10 & 8 year old get to with that sort of money?

    Holy ........! o.o I didn't even have a PC at that age! Only consoles :P And using computers back in the 80's must've been horrible o.o the computers were slow! You couldn't even play Crysis back then! o.o

    I didn't even have an etch a sketch when I was 8, let alone a computer!

    i started C++ learning on my own just in the past summer!
    before that i'd read the stephan pratas C prim > ( the first edition !! 2 years ago , just before pointers... after a while , i saw that i cant just go pick up everything! and master them , better stick to one thing and master it. )
    and 3 years a go i learned some basics about pascal!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6 years ago, i started to learn HTML and basic! , but 6 months after that, i forgot about them,
    ================================================== =

    so im a newbie ! in programming .

    Well, I started C++ more than a year ago, but lost interest 'cause I just couldn't figure stuff out (I had only learn the very basics back then, but I didn't know xP) then half a year later, I got interested in programming again, and decided to take a differen't approach, and went for Visual Basic, and then when I'd learn some stuff about general programming, and had gotten more mature, got back to C++ (This exactly one year later than I started C++ for the first time, it was in start of winter or end of autumn... And now I'm making a game, so proud ^^

    Ping Pong, and it's kinda finished xD Just don't know where to post it on here o.o since no peeps post projects on the Projects and Job Recruitment, and I havn't found any other good forum, so maybe I should just post in game forum, but it's for questions... Meh, the mods can move if I post it in the wrong place
