Welcome to IWETHEY!

New What are you on about? No, absolutely not "Payroll example"!
See the bit about "Branched Reply To ..." up at the top left in my post? Sorry, that's easily overlooked sometimes; maybe I should have quoted a bit of your post that I was responding to.

Just for the record, at the time I posted that, you had got four direct replies (and one indirect one) before mine; of the four, one was a joke and three were simple explanations of why it was unworkable.

I was just thniking that if you could understand and accept that kind of explanation in this sector of life (politics), then maybe you could use that very fact as a starting point to reconsider your reaction to replies pointing out essentially the same thing in another (programming).

Kind of "meta", you see? Discussing about the discussion itself (and your possible approaches thereto). Because I see absolutely no use getting into any discussion that's already umpteen-gazillion layers deep *in* your usual "vague insults!" back-and-forth. (Which you are now, I note, in your usual unthinking fashion trying to expand onto this thread -- in stead of *first* checking what it is we're talking about here!)

The sooner you realise that *that* discussion (that KIND of discussion!) is already, to all practical intents and purposes, LOST for you -- because AFAICS *nobody wants to dance that dance with you any more* -- the better for all involved.

New Okay, I see it now
I don't post on iwethey often enuf to be familiar with that convention. Anyhow, if you've encountered that idea before, then the usual course of action is to simply ignore it. I don't know what you did in highschool, nor do I want to. Whatever it was, it made you grumpy.

                                     C is a crippled language because it is a crippled language - (tablizer) - (17)
                                         I have always considered C to be . . . - (Andrew Grygus) - (15)
                                             I disagree. - (admin) - (1)
                                                 ICLPRD (new thread) - (static)

                                             I gotta say that... - (jb4) - (6)
                                                 It's that stupid single exit point from a function - (crazy) - (5)

                                                             That's a good way out. - (static)
                                         It is not the pinochle of procedural by a longshot, either. -NT - (jb4)
