    Thanks for your consideration psychopath!!!!!! I guess it started when I got addicted to coffee. My hands used to shake a lot cause I wasn't used to the caffeine in my system. Then as I matured (when caffeine took over as the main carrier of oxygen through my body), they didn't shake as much, so I don't get so much iterations of !, ? etc. I also noticed that you don't really need more than one exclamation to enhance a point.

    Well... you can use the find algorithm, instead of the member function. Or you can in fact cast away constness. It's pretty much safe since find() will not change your set

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I wanted too, hehe.
    But I hate those posts that dig old threads. It wouldn't be right

    What's 1 and 4 (?) years between us here online? I'm sure nobody would mind! Nostalgia and whatnot.

    Ha! That still counts as a reply. Thanks for looking at it.

    Of course, I wouldn't actually want to always do a linear search with the find algorithm rather than making the binary search of the set::find() function work. That would be an unnecessary pessimization in my opinion.

    I don't know how I solved the problem. I don't think I used the const cast, I might have changed the functions to take non-const references (or maybe pointers). Or maybe I changed the set to hold something other than pointers. That was a long time ago.

    >Can you remember what your first post was when you joined Cboard?
    Ha! Like that would ever happen. My memory is like a sieve. But it was an early post, maybe in the first 300 after the move to vBulletin.

    >Looking at how much you have learned and gained in experience since that day, would you say you are moving fast in learing C / C++?
    Most certainly.

    No, I can't remember, and the forum only shows the last 500 posts It was probably something dumb, though

    That's only if you're lazy and want the forums to actually search for you. You can go to the archives on the lower right hand side of every page and view the oldies from post #1. But I don't recommend it because you'll find terribly embarrassing things that some of us said and want to leave buried.

    My first thread. Sly's similarly-themed Your first post thread.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I'm searching around the archives for my old high-school buddy's posts.
