exactly. Typos have absolutely nothing to do with coding skills. Some of the world's best computer scientists are also the world's worst typists. I was just trying to help you find the problem with code.

hehe yea sorry for lashing out like that - was a bit stressed. However the first thing I do when getting errors like "unknown symbol" etc. is to copy/paste the name to the declarations, definitions and places where its used. I really don't get this error.

I have a co-worker who's slightly dyslexic and coded the basis of one of our UI engines. To this day, I still have to remember that kRecursiveDeleteAfterDisconect is not the correct spelling.

Global find and replace Wink

Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath the clear blue sky?

You know, we thought about doing that so many times but this was on a project that was under-budget and behind schedule and we were putting out so many "fires" that doing a global find and replace to fix one constant was really, really low on our list of things that needed doing. Smile
