I am a not perfect but "very careful" when writing code. After learning C++ the C++ way, you already know I'm going full blast in-line ASM and tooltips or intellisense could ever make since of what I'll be coding and if it could I don't need it making any suggesting that I use xor eax,eax instead of mov eax, 1. Not all C++ programs has it anyway and people been doing fine with-out it to date, I'm sure. As I said, there is nothing like going down to the pits. You quickly learn how to build it back up to the point you need while learning some new tricks along the way. That's when you can say "I know why that happen" and the debugger never had a clue. "ERROR: Unknown." That is not a crime. It can be big FUN, but don't expect no help from the OS or IDE. They might be ......... heehee
    My point is that you don't. You will never learn everything, not even after 100 years.
    That is IntelliSense and tooltips are great. Need to get to a specific part of the code that you've forgotten where it is? No problem. Forgotten what parameters a function takes? No problem. Don't remember the order of the parameters? No problem.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Elysia, you are one tough cookie. I'll will not be giving up on IntelliSense or tooltips no time soon and will be learning how to use it. This place has a world of information, and it's so active, but cool and calm. I pick up a lot in only 36 hours. No more naps, I'll sleep well tomorrow.
