Firstly, there's no such thing as a dumb question. :) If you want to avoid asking the same question that someone else has already asked I've got some tips, but they're not foolproof. If you're using a newsreader (such as Mozilla Thunderbird or MS Outloook), you can usually sort or filter on Subject. For example with Thunderbird, there's a "Subject or Sender contains" box where I can type search criteria. The web interface to the newsgroup (http://www.digitalmars.com/drn-bin/wwwnews?D) will sort by Subject by clicking on the Subject tab at the top of the page, but you might have to click through a lot of pages to find the subject you're seeking. There's a "Search Site" box at http://www.digitalmars.com/, but it only covers the web pages (not the newsgroup). If you haven't already, it'd be a good idea to look at the FAQ's: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/faq.html http://www.wikiservice.at/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?FaqRoadmap Wiki4D has a variety of information about D and it does have a search function (http://www.wikiservice.at/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?Search). If these tips don't help you with your questions, go ahead and ask your questions here or at dsource.org (http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=4). We're usually a fairly friendly group. -- Justin http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/

He he... has dsource.org been around long enough for that to be proven yet? ;-)

Actually, I meant to suggest that this official newsgroup is pretty friendly. (Unfortunately, my thoughts weren't clearly translated into bytes.) But now that you mention it, I suspect that dsource.org people are probably friendly, too. :) -- Justin http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
