RE: vb code?

Then explain :

Quote

I'd rather not wait 10 minutes for a for loop to complete 5 iterations,

End quote

Putting exaggerations and sarcasm aside, such impressions are taken
seriously by your audience or potential programmers to be, and so it's
important to offer facts.

As a short aside, completely not related to the matter at hand, iteration
only has two t's, not three.

Take care,
Sina

I have, plenty.
glad you made the asumption that I hadn't, though; you seem to be doing that

with the messages of mine you reply to.

My programs don't have bugs, they're called randomly added features.
