    was is past tense if I even did such a thing that you stated there. as I do not even recall doing that. too, if I did it was edited out way way way before anyone even posted to it. so that argument is invalid.
    Bull. Look at my first post.

    From that first post:
    Must be formatted for readability.
    I would say that you failed in this aspect. IMO, you have too many useless multi-line comments that just clutter the program.
    That quoted line was part of your original post. Which was the reason I said what I did.

    So since you edited out that line I would say that all you really wanted is someone to congratulate you on such a "wonderful and concise program".

    Code:
    // self-explanatory?
    Comments like these are funny until someone reading the code doesn't think what you highlighted is self-explanatory.

    hence the question mark ( like k.i.s.s that falls into c.y.a ), it is a question not a statement.

    now I got a go look and figure out what you're talking about.

    I don't see any highlights in the code. soo you lost me there. but do not lose sleep over it, it looks like this post was just a bad idea.

    Yes, probably, like most of your other posts as well.

    I used highlight as a verb. It means to emphasize. I sometimes forget that English might be a second language for you. But you're the first person I've met in your situation who uses the language barrier to deliberately dismiss someone.

    Oh you mean reading that code was the highlight of your day ??? verbs they always get me ...and you're a sneaky one you are.

    "deliberately dismiss someone" utilize the language barrier to deliberately dismiss someone, everyone that speaks a second language does that. or at least to keep it honest slip the word "almost" into that sentence where it make sense,

    So you've never ran into someone that will tell you they do not speak that language just to get out of having to talk to someone, or try to get away with something?

    ps maybe your english skills are not up to par to articulate yourself a little better. But who's judging?
