Just thought I'd toss in a little humour....
« on: May 22, 2011, 05:02:59 am »
I have a friend who's getting to be a pretty good programmer.  He's been using Pelles C for about 5 months now and seems completely satisfied by it. 

The other day I'm over for coffee and he's all in a tizzy...
"What's up?" says I...
"I've been looking for information on this function all day and it's really starting to tick me off!"

I looked over at his screen and noticed the function was syntax highlighted...
So I reached across and pushed F1 ... up comes the help file...

No kidding... the guy actually turned purple, he was so embarrassed.

Apparently he'd been tearing up the internet, making phone calls and what have you all day.

LOL... poor guy, but horrifically funny at the moment.

Nice story. Sometimes, the most basic and elementary is the most difficult for humans.
Code it... That's all...

I sometimes wonder if I'm the only person who actually reads help files... instructions books... setup guides....

Don't forget user manuals, since there is always something new to stumble across.
