    >>btw I am a complete nobbie

    I think this validates ChaosEngine's point best.

    Also, as already stated, your question was really open ended -
    programming is all about defining a problem in good detail, then
    attempting to solve it. If you can't define your problem well for us,
    there is no-one who is going to guess what you mean and
    produce an answer - meet people half way and they'll be glad to
    help, and you won't get flamed by the newest member on the
    board

    If you still have difficulty understanding after ChaosEngine's post,
    for the love of God, Mother Earth, Buddha, Ganesh or whoever
    you believe in, DONT reply saying -"sry dn't understand - can you
    explain it again plz." Instead, try and isolate what you don't get
    and ask a direct question about it.

    >>I need 2 put 2 -n- 2 tougther for ex. how would I use a True,
    False, AND, OR, NOT with text.... like how would I combinde the 2
    things and it work

    Instead try something a bit more descriptive:

    >>I want my program to do X OR/AND/NOT/IF/UNLESS Y, and i
    just don't know how to get off the ground - any ideas?

    Naturally, substituting in details of X and Y, and the operation
    on the middle!

    Ok then, we'll break one down together. Suggest a simple
    program - and by that i don't mean msn messenger - i mean
    something a 4 year old could do (that is not intended as an
    insult, learning to program is a lot like learning how to do things
    all over again). Something real basic, like swap two numbers or
    convert from one currency to another. Just suggest one and we'll
    work off it

    Are you even trying to understand what is going on in this thread cgsarebeast?

    Frst of all - if you cant understand chaos engine's post, then no website will help you.

    Second of all - we dont know what you dont understand ... you just keep saying that you dont.
    So im wondering whether the idea of using these operators is too high for you, or if it is something else that is slowing you down (i.e the if statements .. or anything else in the code). A question for you: have you compiled a working program yet (i.e. one that shows up a small black box, even though it might disappear)





    Code:
    int main()
    {
    int age = 20;  //INTEGER AGE is equal to the number 20
    
    if (age < 10) 
    //If the age is less than 10 (which it isn't because it is 20), execute the code inside of the BRACKETS, in other words display (std::cout << ) "you are young".
    { //BRACKET
        std::cout << "you are young"; // this means print "you are young" on the screen
    }//BRACKET
    
    else if (age >= 10 && age < 20) 
    //If the age is less than 10 (else) and if the age is greater than or equal to 10 (age>=10) 
    //AND (&&) at the same time less than 20 (age<20) then execute code inside of the BRACKETS. In other words, display (std::cout << ) "you are an adolescent".
    {//BRACKET
        std::cout << "you are an adolescent";
    }//BRACKET
    }
    If you STILL dont understand this, it is clearly too complicated of a subject and you should do something a little simpler (like a Hello World program)

    He wants us to spoon feed him like I said earlier. Thier is a reason to help out new programmers but ive never seen someone that cannot understand the most basic of basic if you cant do c++ then go to vb(Means Visual Basics but to me it means Very Basic) probably alot more your thing *lol

    so far you've yet to demonstrate that.

    look man, I'm not pestering you for fun. When writing code, you have no room for spelling or grammaticals mistakes.
    Code:
    PrintFile(someFile);
    is not the same as
    Code:
    Prntfile(sme_file);
    This simply won't compile.

    good for you. Write all the shorthand type you want in your personal notes. However, you are now communicating with other intelligent human beings. As a general rule, we don't like txt-style writing; it's annoying and difficult to read.

    So what? Plenty of 16 year olds write correctly.

    I'm sorry to hear that. But you seem to think that you can overcome this disorder enough to write code, so you should be able to communicate.
