    I understand that it means that "if this condition is true, do this stuff". OF COURSE. That is the very basic premise of a loop, or hell even an if statement. You are not paying attention to what I am writing at all, are you? You're just looking to put me down. I said it was the "do stuff B" portion that threw me, and that was not as obviously stated in any link provided by anyone else in this thread. I've said repeatedly that what may seem obvious to a seasoned programmer is not obvious to someone like me who is starting at 0 and is not even a CS major.

    By repeatedly calling me an idiot for being a newbie in programming, you're making yourself look like the arrogant, idiotic one with a serious ego complex and I'm sure a host of other issues. I hope you realize that.

    I've been posting here for more than a decade. I know when someone is just a lazy git that doesn't want to do any work on their own. You are that person. If after going through your book, and both tutorials linked for you, you still can't understand that things inside a loop happen until the condition is false, and then it exits the part where it loops, and continues on, then programming is not for you.

    It has nothing to do at all with programming, and everything to do with basic logic. If your mother sends you to your room and says "stay in your room until you clean it, then you can go out and play, why would you get confused about the then you can go play part? It makes no sense, which leads me to believe that either you are a complete idiot, or you are in fact lazy and didn't bother reading anything anyone said here.
    Code:
    Pick one or more:
        You are lazy.
        You are an idiot.
    THEN you can post again.
    If you are still confused by all of that, go actually read the links provided for you earlier.

    If you think I care what anyone here thinks of me, you've got a surprise coming.

    SWEET JESUS. You go on and on about logic and yet you don't seem to hear any of mine. For the last time, I'm was not confused about the "then you can go play" part, I was unsure whether if this condition was not met, it implied that the opposite must be true without actually stating this explicitly.

    Yes, you have clearly been posting here for more than a decade, as the one other time I came on here for help you were also around. It's clear you spend a lot of time on here. No one's debating that, Quzah. But it also implies that you have been programming for more than ten years, whereas I haven't even been programming for 10 weeks. The way you are treating me is like a native English speaker berating a first semester English student in a foreign country for not understanding what he considers simple logic.

    I'm sure you're a brilliant person Quzah, but your attitude clearly needs fixing. If you treat people this way in real life, then it's beyond clear to me why you spend so much time on a virtual forum yelling at strangers.

The question I asked subhash.rao (if you bothered to read it) was whether the falsity of the opposite was IMPLIED by not referring to it. subhash explicitly confirmed that for me when I asked him. I am by no means intentionally slighting ANYONE. He was more helpful and that's the damn truth.

    PS: I call ego issues.

    See spot run? Spot runs fast!

    Really... you're not going to be much of a programmer if you can't read above grade 2 levels...
