For the half of you that whine and complain that the new people don't use code tags please do not respond to me but for the people that did a great job helping me before:

I was asked how to use code tags and i am sorry but this is what I got

you mean

// your code here

The only thing I could come up with is the # sign at the top for code and the tex button at the top for comments and non code related if this is right let me know and if not can you please explain it just a little better so I can make my questions easier for you guys since your the ones helping us.

Code tags:

[code=c++] // your code goes here

[/code]
I always manually type in the code tags you see above. I only takes a second or two to get great looking results.

Im still not explained by an example but hope this works

Jim: Do NOT use ICODE or TXT tags -- do it exactly as I illustrated in my previous post. NO OTHER TAGS PERMITTED. I removed those two tags from your post.

ok i think i got it wow i made that harder than it looked...ok my only problem is one last thing....when I try to run it everything is fine but one thing...after i click 'y' and it starts back at hotdogs it seems the input is still saved from the previous bill so when I click tacos it automatically compares sour cream to the previous bill if that makes sense

After 23 posts, did you ever notice there were words on the background of the textbox you enter all your posts? They also explain CODE tags. So do various threads at the top of the forums, and the Rules.
