    putting exes on a web broswere!

    It can be done! I remember how to do it now!

    You have to convert the exe to a swf file.

    Only problem is I'm not sure how to do this and what to do after it.

    A SWF file is a Flash file. They aren't exactly the same...

    Yeah - I think you're confusing concepts. Flash can produce output in a number of different formats - I wouldn't be surprized if a stand-alone executable was one of them, but I doubt you'd be able to take an executable produced by a compiler and turn it into Flash material suitable for viewing over the internet.

    I tried perl once and came whimpering back to C and PHP. I really should learn it, but there are some other languages that need learning first.

    i hate how gruesome perl is to look at...it's like the bulldog of computer languages (unless you count COBOL...but i don't consider that a language)...but perl is pretty forgiving on a lot of things...that's why i like to use it for my own stupid little programs that no one else would even have use for (i used to anyway..i forgot a lot of the syntax).....

    believe it or not, just jacking arround, i actually made an "array" in perl once like this:
    Code:
    //don't use strict
    $index = 0;
    $i = 0;
    while($i < 5)
    {
    	$arr.$index = $i;
    }
    (p.s. i know cobol IS a full functional language, i just pray i never have to learn it)
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?

    I think PERL is the undefeated champion of string parsing. It was the second language I learned and I do find it to have some nice useful elements. But other than using it for simple scripts, the language tends to use a less than pretty syntax so is not too great for massive projects.

    i must agrre that perl is the reigning champion, and it's only shred of eloquence:

    m/a$[a-z]*^.(\s[a\x+?d])+p/ige
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
