    Onerous Onomatopoeia is a far better name for a Ubuntu iteration, IMO :laugh:

    Srsly though, who's idea was it to omit strings from C? and being a complete n00b I'm struggling to convert pointers into multi-dimensional character arrays and I don't even know what this means :bricks:

    C has strings. A string in C is defined as a null-terminated char array. There are loads of string functions, which usually take a pointer to the start of the string and interpret the null character as the end of a string.

    String literals are enclosed in double quotes and the null character in this situation is implicit. i.e, these are equivalent:

    Code:
    char str[10] = "Hello.";
    Code:
    char str[10] = {'H', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o', '.', '\0'};

    char arrays are a poor replacement for proper strings :haughty:

    I needed to copy a string that was actually a pointer (???) into an array of strings (i.e. an array of arrays of chars) in a loop. But for some reason whatever I tried, I couldn't copy the entire string into a char array, so instead I've done something really long-winded and constructed a loop that copies each character of the string into the char array one by one It's not ideal but it works and the state of my code doesn't matter, so I'm happy

    IE9 released. Is a massive step from ie7/8.
    Admittedly playing catchup with chrome but hot damn, it plays catchup well. I might even open it occasionally now.

    Agreed, though I'm mostly using the Chrome Canary build or the FF4 RC. if they fail, I sue Chrome Stable, then IE9, simply because of extensions support/tab management in IE9 is not as good as the other two.

    I also use Opera 11 occasionally, because it's generally more compliant to standards than others. (I build websites for Opera or Chrome, then break them to make them render as I want with the other browsers).

    I do like the FF4 RC though, Tab Candy/Panorama is really useful if you've a machine powerful enough, and it's got the smallest toolbar space if set to small icons when maximised (without the bookmarks toolbar, which I bring up temporarily if I need access to it).
