Why blaim VB? why not blaim consistancy with Java, Delphi, C, C++ et al?

I'm from a strong C/++ background, and find no issue with doing object->method() et al -- let's face it, most C++ code, you only ever have pointers to objects if you want to do anything non trivial.

Regarding the digression on using . for string concatination, I believe through the mists of my memory that at some point duing my studies at Essex University that it comes from some branch of mathematics (which is essentially where all programming originates). I forget which branch and also whether this is just my memory eludin me -- If I remember, I shall check my notes this evening.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
