This is a DUPLICATE QUESTION, and I will reject the proposed answer, refund points and close this item for you.  Additionally, you can avoid these problems by not hitting submit more than once, and/or if the application hangs, using the RELOAD function versus browser controls such as refresh/F5 or back button.  In addition, there are access problems when a hyperlink is posted in the topic of the question, and I will need to modify this on your other open question for you.  Please include links in the comment area versus the topic or subject line.

krydea -->  You LOCKED both duplicate questions with a proposed answer, please do not do this, as it is a disservice to the Asker and this site.  Please read the Question/Answer information on the bottom of this page as well as the HELP DESK Guidelines and Member Agreement.  If you have questions in this regard, please post a zero point question in the Community Support topic area where we can continue this discussion.

Thanks,

kpnkpn,
If you want to award the points to krydea, you still can on your original question.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/cplusprog/Q.20282193.html

The admin assigned this question zero points, because it was a duplicate question.

I believe the admin also rejected both posted answers, because the expert posted an answer in both duplicate questions, which is agaisnt EE policy.

krydea,
To avoid this in the future, post only one answer.  Do NOT post an answer in both duplicate questions.

Most C++ experts post their answers as comments.
Also, I suggest you post your answer as a comment.  This would have also avoided this problem.
