Thanks for your help I'll be heading over to that thread. I don't think it is unrealistic at ALL to expect printed code to compile. Poor grammar I can live with, but a sloppy index and incorrect code I can not. I paid for the book to learn how to program, not to bang my head for an hour then turn to the next page to find out I just wasted my time. Again,thanks for the help!
if you don't know, then ask. if you do know, then share. love is knowledge.
