That's very funny.  Perhaps you should be a comedian instead of a

Those responses are NOT rude, as you seem to imply.  The simple fact
is that your question indicates that you are lacking some _basic_
knowledge required to understand C++ coding.  The response is an
hostest attempt to make you understand that your _BEST_ course of
action at this level of learning is to get a good book and read it.
Personally, I recommend _The_C_Programming_Language_ by Kernighan and
Richie.  It's an excellent read.

We could be very careless and just _tell_ you the answer, but we're
better people than that.  We recognize the level of learning that you're
at (because we've all been there) and are attempting to help you along.
