    ...but I, too, am curious about what it actually is.

    There's an algorithm here. If you can't convert it to C, doing a search on google might help.

    Question

    I was reading the reccomended site and wondered what does @ do? By the way, what language was that in?

    i'm guessing it's pascal, it looked a lot like basic though... and it's not that hard to follow so you can plug it in yourself...

    Must be pascal. Gosub *v(1,2,3) is not valid in BASIC. It would have to be changed to gosub 40 or another valid line number.

    There are no official pointers in BASIC. You can do them, but it is not at all like C or PASCAL. The * character in BASIC means multiply and nothing else. This codes also looks a bit strange to even be Pascal, though.

    It's definately not pascal code. I've written pascal some 5 years ago. Pascal's more C-like language.

    It's UBasic. Don't know what it means though, probably Ugly-Basic or something PASCAL looks waaaaaaay more structured.


    Edited to add:

    I am having trouble with girls.... could someone send me the girl of my dreams to nvoigt@... I would be very thankful.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    @ is the remainder after integer division operator, (like our %).
