Newbie Guide

Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at May 03, 2002, 05:14:47 PM

Some time ago I remember people saying that there was going to be a 'huge' newbie q & a to prevent the newbie questions in the forums. Has it actually been done ? Well , I could find it.

I think I newbie guide would stop stupid posts like -

I have a problem:

#inlcyde <stdik.h>


printg("This is lame\n/n")


Solve it for me......

A good newbiee guide needs to be compiled buy MANY people , so that aspects can be covered easily.

I believe that the functionality for doing such a thing is actually sitting around in some little-used category, although probably a very buggy implementation of it... I'm guessing it is in the playground cat for admins who care to have a tinker. Probably called something like "faq".

Yes , its not exactly easy to use and productive , this needs a long organised document gian. If anyone will follow , I will try my best. Depends on how many people will help to create such a document ... It would need to be from many people so it would cover some langs , teqniques and so on.

If anyone does want to help me , as i wont be here for the next 4 weeks , I dont go on the internet for reasons of having a non-linux compatible modem. Please e-mail me , next time I am here I can give you a small draft in LaTeX.My implemenation wont go into languages but will concntrate on something every language has ( ifs , dos , gotos ... ) and it will go into the new programming tools avalible .NET ( its crapp ! ) gcc egcs and so on. It would be good if some people could help me write about diferent programming languages. If you do want to help with this guide , please e-mail me at 99vladimirlukyanov@mws.eril.net.

-Draft will be in 4 weeks , Vlad.

It'll be easy to use and all that stuff if one of us gets it working; it's got the potential to be a very handy little thing.

Before you go and do this, the thing that Buzgub and I were reffering to is a way that anybody can contribute a FAQ answer/question.
