Well, actually, the question is specific to both the platform and the
language. This board has more members than does the DOS board, so I
figured I would get more responses and quicker feedback.
Since my question IS focused on C++, it does belong here; and anal
replies like yours are vain, elitist, and unnecessary. If you don't
want to help me, then don't. I asked for some help nicely, and you
proceeded to flex your internet forum muscle by redirecting me when my
question was quite relevant.
If anyone else can help me, I would really appreciate it.
