How bout doing the linking manually, like what I was talking about earlier, is there a way to do that so that I can organize my code better.  Reply With Quote

2. there is a pragma for that:
*klick*

although i did not find this to be all that useful. imho, if your code looks like a mess, it's probably a problem with the code itself, rather than how the editor displays it...   Reply With Quote

Yeh, I don't think I'll have too much of a problem with formatting my code so that it is readable, i'm a bit fussy like that, I like to have things in specific folders and so on, rather than all my downloads in the one single folder or all my music in one folder, I put them in their own appropriate folders so they're easier to find.
It's the same with using the heirarchy editor in Maya when you're animating and so on, it just makes things easy to find and edit rather than having to search for a needle in a haystack.  Reply With Quote

4. that is usually the purpose of using functions   Reply With Quote

hehe.

I have another question now.

The bit about the memory allocation and stuff, just after he says "this is how you count:

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F"

To me, that would mean that D = 14 yet in the video he pulls the number 16 out of god knows where (did he add 2 + 14 since it says 2D?) and doubles the number 16 (so WHY does he double the number? Is it because 2 is before D so the total of 2 and D also gets doubled by the 2 infront of D?!?!?) then to confuse us even more, he then throws in 13 out of god knows where, and brings it up to the total of 45.

How on earth is this equation done?
I'll take a look in that thread right now, maybe there is a better explanation because I think my brain just convulsed a bit.  Reply With Quote

6. 2d should be 45

Just as when we as humans have 10 fingers, we count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and then its 10
If you had 15 fingers you would do 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f then 10 so, 20 in hex is 32, but I make D 13 :P not 14.

so 32+13 = 45  Reply With Quote

Sorry that made worse sense than buzz's description :S

From what you're saying, it reads like:
01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,0A,0B,0C,0D,0E,0F,10,11 ,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20 etc

That does not make sense to me, what are the values of the letters?
And how would 20 equal 32? If I were counting up from 1, through to 9, through from A to F, through from 11 to 20, then 20 would equal 25, not 32. :S

I initially read it like this:
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A=10, B=11, C=12, D=13, E=14, F=15

Hence why you're saying D is 13. and 0f equally 15. THAT actually makes sense.

So did you get the value 20 because in hex it was 2D (take away the D and it's 20?) .
I'm super confused by this, because I see alot of calculations going out with random numbers being pulled from god knows where, but no explanation as to HOW those numbers actually came about, can you please explain a little more in depth?
Perhaps write down the step by step procedure for calculating all of this.
1. You count to 9 as you can see, then a=10 and so on, which would mean that if you count up to D, D would equal 13.
2. Then in order to find the number 16 you have to.... (you do the rest)

8. here is how to count in Hexadecimal on the left is Hexadecimal and on the right is the base 10 that you are use to counting in. sorry it gets long

Hex base 10
00=00
01=01
02=02
03=03
04=04
05=05
06=06
07=07
08=08
09=09
0A=10
0B=11
0C=12
0D=13
0E=14
0F=15
10=16
11=17
12=18
13=19
14=20
15=21
16=22
17=23
18=24
19=25
1A=26
1B=27
1C=28
1D=29
1E=30
1F=31
20=32  Reply With Quote

I think that already makes more sense.

So I would calculate 45 as:

So if you were to continue numbering that down it would be:

21=33
22=34
23=35
24=36
25=37
26=38
27=39
28=40
29=41
2a=42
2b=43
2c=44
2d=45
2e=46
2f=47
30=48

and so on?

What happens once you get to the triple digit mark?

99
9a
9b
9c
9d
9e
9f

What would be next?  Reply With Quote

10. 100
101
102
103
104
105
106
107
108
109
10a
10b
10c
10d
10e
10f

I fully do not know Hexadecimal but I will try to help where I can.
One of my teachers has a quote "If you give a fish to a man he will eat for a day. If you teach a man how to fish he will eat for a lifetime." up there i gave you a fish but you really did not learn. So now that you had a taste its time for you to learn!
