For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
The simplest way to do this is to read the file line by line and check for the data that you are interested in. Remember a text file is just a stream of characters with no structure so you cannot easily use file positioning to get to a particular item.
Oh, this explains why I got an email that contained code but couldn't find the same message on this board.
Sorry, I don't do code inspections. If you don't know how to use a debugger, you need to learn now. The days when I wrote code with very few errors are gone. I wouldn't be able to do anything without a debugger now. They're so much better and easier to use than they were 40 years ago that I just focus on the design and then use the debugger to fix the details that I got wrong.
Okay may be i disturbed everyone here for nothing... I'm really sorry for stupid questions. I do actually know how to debug you sir when you get stuck only then you ask for help... but that debugger get the job done after 7 hours ... and Richard's steps may be helpful but it is very difficult for me to understand it you know... Anyways
Thank you for your help, i appreciate your help
