Sonnybobiche --

Code snippet?  For what it's worth, there are practically no subtleties about C/C++ if statements.

Code: Select all

if (condition) {
} else {

is a pretty clean structure.  Mind you, some people get burned by mixing up '==' and '=' in the the condition expression... reasonable compilers will warn you about that sort of thing (e.g. if using gcc, use -Wall, -ansi and -pedantic to catch a lot of bogosities).

I think AnthonyS was just trying to say, in his own special way, that VB is much less efficient than assembly.  Its a valid point.  

Sonnybobiche, what is so hard about an if statement?  Your logic must be off.  I bet if you post the statement in question someone can find the problem.  :)

Chad Mulligan: I would just like to point out how badly the Titans beat the Steelers.  Up until the end there it was a complete rout.  I am sorry about Maddox, he seems to be OK though so hopefully. . . :)

Yep... it was the damned ==. I just had an = sign.
Then i thought it was working great until it just stopped working on the else if. That turned out to be caused by a " \n" in a cin statement. (I have no idea why I did that.)
Now the thing works like a charm. Thanks, though.

Java, better than c/c++ ?

no way,
yes, java is a lot more portable than other languages


java is very slow when it comes to writing large programs
(did anyone hear of corel office for Java?
- it got canned because it ran too slowly)

also there is no direct memory (RAM) access for java, you have to rely on the machines garbage collector to clear any un-needed parts of the program from memory

if you want to read a couple of articles on the language go [url="http://dir.salon.com/tech/col/garf/2001/01/08/bad_java/index.html"]here[/url] or [url="http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-02-2001/jw-0202-javasalon.html"]here[/url]
