- Are these three lines of data actually ONE line or indeed THREE lines? Tip: enclose your data in <code> ... </code> tags. That makes it easier to see the actual format and also things like square brackets and such.

There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
