Further I said (it seems) you find it difficult to accept your mistakes
because you said you hate something (using two different syntaxes for
strings and numbers) in Perl and in the same breath you were offering
your explanation that it was a pseudo code. Either of the two can be
wrong at one time either you or Perl not both of these; mutually exclusive
events you see.
If perl is wrong no need of saying that "it was a pseudocode " if you were
wrong say "yes i was wrong instead of saying that I hate Perl".
do you have a problem with people posting pseudocode as a possible solution? Further, i did not say i hate Perl totally that I discourage people to use it, have i ?
in rest of my post but please explain "OT", so that next time I can be
OT means out of topic.
Had I seen "Sorry I was wrong in my pseudo-code" this line in your post
I would hae never said or posted another word here and I will not post
anything new here I think I have made my point very clear to the best
of my ability.
a pseudocode is just an illustration of an algorithmic idea, independent of what the syntax might be. If i really want to post a full solution, do you think i would not know the difference between eq and == ?? (FYI, i have been programming Perl and Python since the 90's. ) I can quite confidently say, i know what's going on.
