Btw, I never said anything about not learning C on my own, or learning
anything about the code without looking through each piece of it for
however many months it may take.  I was simply responding to the fact
that newbieimps were flammed to death for asking about a doc to help
add classes.  From the question, all newbieimps were flammed for asking
anything about everything and that we don't do anything on our own.
Before I even think about putting a question up here, I search for the
answer on my own by looking at the code and other types of code, referring
to the little C knowledge I have and the C book I am using, and a little
common sense.  But I would at least like to have the knowledge that if I,
a newbieimp, should decide to use this mailing list to learn a little
more from you guruimps as you do with this list, I won't get flammed like
the previous one for being a newbie imp.
