in thread why the array index has to start at 0??

'How is babby formed' features the idiotic ramblings of semi-literate native English speakers. targetsmart has not shown himself to be an idiot.

Why arrays start at index 0 rather than 1 is a good question. It shows that he is questioning the foundations of the language as he learns, and seeking to understand things at a fundamental level.

Basic, "obvious" questions that are so fundamental as to be invisible to most are the type of questions that bring real understanding and advancement.

It is sad to see such rudeness on this site. It is even worse to see racist and ad hominem attacks here.

P.S. The accepted plural form of "index" is typically "indexes", but "indices" is also acceptable. Finding irony of your use of "indecies" is left as an exercise for the reader.
