Zamaster: I just realized... your signature has backslashes (//), they should be regular slashes (\\) if you want it to be like DOS's filesystem. And to the original poster: think about the problem you're trying to solve. Do you know how many times you're going to have to run the loop? If so, you'll...

Heh, this was a question I've been on the verge of asking for a few years, but I found a way around having to use it. Basically, what I wanted to use it for was to change variables from scripts. Example script file: changevariable playerX, 2 changevariable money, 40000 A giant lookup table would wor...

I'm not a C++ expert by any means, so if I screwed anything up, or anything I said was false, PLEASE, let me know! :D Although I did test all of the code. "Wow. That was a lot.

It covers: -Prototype declarations -Variable Scope -Zero Terminated Strings -Pointers -Heap Memory -Structures -Classes (which covers theory, creating classes, encapsulation, get...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the .NET framework supposed to be like a bastardized version of the Java VM? Which in itself is stupid, since the Java VM is supposed to be platform independent... I don't see MS writing the .NET framework for other platforms like Linux and Macintosh. Oh right, our...

I think you've misunderstand sumfin. FB is not only for games. Just like Qb you can use it to develop applications. It should be even possible to build a windows-shell for DOS in the process. VB is okay but I personally think it is cheating because you don't need to build the windows yourselfs anym...

You're better off just to make your own graphics code, or use a library, anyway.

Well, you can program your own case insensitivity routines if you really wanted to. I'm pretty much a stranger to the C Standard Library, but are there any routines like UCASE and LCASE in there (probably in the <strings> file)

Oh, and you can edit your posts, so you can put in BBCode if you want to.

Kevin: Hold on a sec... you say you don't like C, but you want a Dev C++ style IDE? Why? In all honesty I've never used Linux, but I'm getting a computer or two from a friend (Pentium 2's) and I may just have to try it out. Apple will just sit there and look pretty like it always does...
