    So, asking questions are considered rude by you.

    Is posting on this site, "We do NOT give out free code without the OP posting some code to show they are trying to solve the problem." considered rude by you?

    Edit: The fact that the "LinuxOwner" did NOT consider the link to the C::B FAQs something reasonable to post in answer to his off-topic post makes me think she/he was not even knowable about how forums work. His reply to that was
    Thanks?

    Why have Forums? I'm sure that anyone can answer a question with "read these please":
    www.google.com
    www.mysql.com
    and
    www.cprogramming.com
    or whatever.

    I'm looking for a "Yes this should be all you need, or a NO, there are additional requirements and you might want to start by looking into (XYZ)."

    I'm close to 40 years old with a full time job and do not have the Time nor luxury of reading every written documentation know to mankind to get a simple answer. I was rather hoping users here would help in the sake of time management rather than waste it. Unfortunately it seems as though people are more interested in playing Forum police and treating me as if I'm a child doing homework. For those of you who are actually interested in helping someone with the answer, UNCONDITIONALLY... please feel free to post. Anyone else, unless you are offering something other than more wasted time, please don't bother to comment.

    Thank you to those users who see my point.

    regards.

    There is some truth to that I keep stating rules on C::B site and the users tend to keep ignoring the rules.
    But, the users do seem to change.

    Some reason sites like "cboard.cprogramming.com" keep implying that Code::Blocks is a Compiler. It seems to be a lost cause to teach the users the truth.
