    Things you would like to see in the FAQ

    I'm compiling a list of things that people would like to see put in the FAQ. I have literally zero time available right now (I shouldnt even be here typing this) but some people have approached me with this and i agree. The FAQ needs updating and i think people would like to see some more stuff in it.

    So heres your chance. What would you like to see? I'll be compiling a list and when i think its complete i'll be posting again looking for people who would be willing to actually write the stuff.

    So, let the posting begin!

    I'd say pretty much everything on the FAQ board that's not already in the (ahem) board FAQ...

    I can compile the ones there, if you don't have enough time.

    I'm going to let this thread sit here for a while until it accumulates a bunch of ideas. Then in a couple days i'll get back to everyone who offers and help and i'll try to find people who can do the rest. I'm sorry but i cant do anything right now as i'm really busy. I'll check back ASAP though and sort it all out. Keep the ideas coming. Thanks guys.

    I would like to see more commonly used methods. Like others have said, File I/O, sorting arrays etc. Maybe some information about compiler differences or use of compilers in general, specifcally like debugging and general info like that.

    I would also like to see more being done with the FAQ board.

    How about expanding the ways that people use structures & unions,
    Iv'e notice that the tutorials and books breeze across the subject

    i.e differing way to access, assign & manipulate members within unions & structures.

    Lightbulb We should have a poll...

    If there will be a new faq... I think people should vote on "candidates" to be in charge of it. Whoever gets elected is the new "FAQ Master" or w/e. I for one would like to be nominated, since I think everyhting i've seen so far is great ideas!
