    I'm innocent

    Well, i'm too new in this job, and you know: ignorance is bliss, love is blindness and so on...I'm so enthusiastic about that you might be right, I'm the one that does not see the broken bridge. Well, open my eyes!

    Maybe the hungarian notation which I have troubles handling , I would need not a C book, but a H dictionary :-)

    BCB fits better for what I know. Seen da visual that it is able to do ans passed to run time creation of controls. I think it would take about six days to release my opera... As far as remember, there was another one with a 6 dayz task: would it be Bjarne?
    BTW, I have a post on the C++ board, maybe you'll take a look... (Create event for run-time button?)

    I might have to do a brain check, though...

    sorry for da REMark, but semicolon is really nothing compared. Being on the keyboard, always in your eyes, how could one forget? Hint: type one extra, never knows.
    Now I C.

    Hmmm I don't see how you can go too long without getting used to ;'s and {}'s. I did a school year of qBASIC and this year I'm doing C++. At the beginnig I pretty much refused to use semicolons and never used the ==. But now I'm really used to it and I kick myself in the ass when I forget to do something little like that.

    BTW what the hell is hungarian notation?

    Hungarian notation is putting a letter code in frontof a variable name to show its type
    ie int iVar;

    I use it in WIN32 to tell the difference between things like a HBITMAP or BITMAP that relate to the same *.bmp. Or when I am using strings and ints in an array.
    Code:
    if(iIndex==iItem1)
    {
        sprintf(szBuffer,"%s %s",sArray[iIndex],sItem1);
    }
    If your app is a few pages no problem. If it is a few hundred pages, not all written by you, or you have been working on it for a over a year, I would suggest using it.

    But is personal taste.

    *shudder* I wouldn't suggest it, what if the program specs change and you have the sole duty of changing every little occurance of iVar to fVar? Hungarian notation is useful in identifying the data type, but it binds the variable too closely to the type. Which makes for nasty maintenance.

    Thats what ctrl-h (replace) is for.
    I have an app that finds and replaces strings in .c, .h, .cpp ect files in given folders for just such occurences.

    As I write small, contained functions to one thing and avoid using globals, changing a variable name is not that hard.

    Once you look things up a few times you'll remember it. It's just when you go through a chapter and not do any of the exercises that you forget the syntax.

    Well, excusable ==, it's not even eroneous, just woun't get the expected, but how compile without ;?

    Beware, a 'visual' example is very strong! How would you like to see your surgeon doing something like this? It's not like you would not come back to him, it's like you might not leave.

    Am I not the only one using BCBuilder here? What are you using anyway?

    Using MS DEV and not knowing HU notation?

    Then how come you managed to ignore the hungarian notation till now?

    BTW, I am very interested in you opinion about .net. Is so much noise about, that I tend to think daonly major change is the name. Exept they might introduced some new notation?!...

    So, what a you using now if not paying for it? Are you coding for your own pleasure, or academical purposes? What do you do for living?

    I'm a high school student, I use Visual Studio 6. I use it just to fool around with, but I keep it handy because I'm planning on starting some windows programming. The day I make a penny off of making a program using MSVC is the day I will buy the retail version.
