Too much debate, all the time ;_;

For those who are interested, I got a B on my first English paper. It makes me want to bite into something.

At any rate, parsers are still moving along in my free time, which isn't much, but now it's weekend, so I can conjure more.

Have a second English paper to write. Makes me want to smash something.

Why did you take English? I'm not sure how US colleges work, but couldn't you just take maths and sciences?

No, you need to take English and History as well as Math and Science.

Which is part of English class.

I learn writing and literature in French, too.

Ah, right. I don't know if its comparable, but in UK Sixth Form (A-level) you take 4 subjects and I do two Maths, Physics and Chemistry. No writing and almost no work outside of class unless you need to revise something.

I'm taking 5. (In order: Biology, Spanish, Chemistry, Maths, and Further Maths)
I have a friend who is taking 3 - Vocational Business Studies, Applied Science (AKA Science for those with an attention span of zero), and [...something else? It'll come to me soon]. I didn't manage to persuade him to change, but IMO that's a really bad set of qualifications he's going to end up with.

And if you haven't already, this is a big help with pretty much every one of my subjects except Spanish. (You can look up species, molecules, solve equations, rearrange equations, deal with imaginary numbers, etc)

Yes, but it's usual to take four at AS and three for A2.

Where are you applying for university and what for, by the way?

In the US, you're required to take Math, Science, English, History, and a language other than English (for me, French) in Middle School, High School, and College.

Also, on the download page, it says 2k and up, and I'm quite sure that the G++ will work in 9x as well.

If it was just math and science, I'd do nothing outside of class. There are so many core requirements, it's not funny. Or fair.
Right now I'm finishing my psychology essay. I Just finished my Econ project, and made the cfile parser correctly handle typedef'ing new types. (as in typedef struct {...})

I may have to make a unique flag to tell if the type is a typedef, and then use the primary member, that way typedef will work with all the references.

That would mean that it'd use the only member in the type as the official one.
And recurse on more typedefs.
