There are some very helpful people in the UK on this list. I am sorry
that you have such disdain for newbies. Not all of us were born
knowing everything.

To the many many people on this mailing list who are extremely
helpful, to me and others, you have my sincere appreciation. I'm sure
that the others who do not find everything intuitively obvious are
also very grateful for your time and help! My belief is that even the
gurus on this list learn new things, from time to time.

I did not top post. I do not top post.  I began a new thread.

I posted in the other thread that I did not want to hijack the thread
begun by "tech". I was amused that the other person had a similar
problem, in Perl, with a "hello world" problem and I posted that I was
having the same problem, with C++.

That I could have done. I should have eliminated the code that I
included at the bottom, but, I thought possibly someone else on this
list would find that C++ book very useful, especially since it can be
downloaded, free.
