Congratulations!


You're the first Savant on the board with which I regularly cross paths, so this is a momentous occasion for me.

I do urge the EE elite to reconsider the name "Savant", though.  The technical definition sounds an awful lot like Rain Man, to me.   :)

>To start with, ':=' is a PASCAL assignment operator
I think you can guess what my first programming language was, I assume...

now, there are other "languages" that have that, at least Oracle PL/SQL is using it also :)

thanks for not moving the q :)

Hi Vee,

"IF" should be lower case in a C++ forum.  "THEN" doesn't compute at all.  :^}


Hi jkr,

Can you work this into your next sample code:




class jkr
{
  public:
    jkr ();
    int True ();
    int False ();
    int Maybe ();
};
 
jkr::jkr ()
{
  if (!True ())
    False ();
  else
    Maybe ();
}

Yes, maybe we should all club together and send him away for a while :)

I remember 1974.  :)

Everyone that did "real" computing used FORTRAN or Assembler, and a bunch of theorists were trying to push PASCAL, ALGOL, SNOBOL, LISP, et al down our throats.

So how come C won out?  :/

Grats, jkr!  That's a lot of points.

>Are you correcting my FORTRAN IV "IF --> THEN" statement?
Vee,  It looks like you're starting your code in column 1...
:-)

... fine with me: As long as you want me to stay away, that is however, at www.l-hotel.com *eg*

Anyone as FORTRAN-dyslexic as I am? *duck*

Hearty congratulations JKR.

Now you are the star (of C++) at EE :)
Though I look and post/reply at EE part time or when I find sometime, it is a great knowledge point to share and learn.  
I see your name very frequently in many C++ posts, and keep noted your posts any thing new or I missed.

Kudos and the best wishes.
Keep the great job going :)
