Why do people need a answer from people on here when a answer automatically pops up after you ask it?
One of the major purposes of Ask is the contribution made to the Susan G. Koman foundation with every answer. I'd like to invite you to participate by visiting http://www.ask.com/cpp?qsrc=4118 and get a pink star beneath your avatar.
its to get you the most answers possible. sometimes there is no textbook answer in life sometimes peoples personal answers might help you more than anything.
Sometimes the specific answer your looking for doesn't come up. So they ask the community what they think. Plus you want to see how many answers you can get so you have more of a variety
