in reply to Newbie programming questions

It sounds like the questions you are asking are homework questions... but looking at your previous posts, it's looks like you're interested in building / extending windows applications. Perhaps, rather than focusing on the windows platform (which can be confusing) consider using a different operating system all together...
PS. Consider changing the subject of your post next time to something like windows programming...

    Becausing linux is *so* simple and easy to use. Really. I swear.

      No, linux is not simple and easy.

      It's just that, when you have a question, there usually is a straightforward (albeit not always easy) way to find the answer.

      Most (all) configuration is in plain text files, for example. Each with a slightly different syntax, but most of the time readable ( notwithstanding).

      Most programs come with documentation and source code, which is not always easy to read, but at least it's possible.

      Windows systems have this maddening tendency to try to protect the user from himself... I prefer a good length of rope, even if it means I will, sooner or later, hang myself.

[LanX]: but but but ... the errors are nicely formatted!
[tye]: 1) The python stack traces show you the names of variables, not the values of variables. Almost never informative.
[LanX]: do you have a py job now?
[tye]: Right now I have errors trying to fetch stuff from graphite. It says 'apps not ready, check startup logs'. I eventually find the startup logs and see 'no apps found'. Looking for fixes to this problem...
[LanX]: no idea ... ask py monks! ;-p
[tye]: it turns out that this can be caused by almost anything going wrong. If you want to know what caused the problem, you have to try to load each app by-hand to see what problems it is having, because none of those will be logged.
[tye]: No, I write more Perl than py at work. But I have to deal with plenty of py things.
[tye]: py monks would just be offended.
[Corion]: ;)
[Corion]: Hi tye btw ;)
