And would any programmers out there like to explain to wirthling the magnificent what 42-- means?
Sure. In just about every language I can think of, "42--" will cause an error. This is usually because you're trying to alter the value of a constant. As far as I know, FORTRAN is the only language which allows you to perform such a moronic action. And I don't remember whether FORTRAN even had an autodecrement operator. On the whole, you might have been better off with something like "$i = 42; $i--;".

Now, as to the meaning of "42 - -", which is what you really typed in the title of your comic, I've no clue. You appear to be trying to subtract a subtraction sign, or maybe the standard input stream, from a constant.

But hey, I don't know what more we should expect from a guy who can't even spell the name of his own web site correctly.

When I typed the title into the Stripcreator, the two hyphens merged into one line and I was afraid that when the comic was made they'd still look that way. So I stuck a space in between them.

As for the argument, you are of course correct. I got it completely wrong. I'm a dumb twit and should be ashamed of myself.

The what mentioned above is total fiction. Please don't take it seriously!

Haha! I made you feel bad, you pedantic ****! I didn't really care all that much. I think the majority of us that have been here a while have developed pretty thick skins. If we hadn't, wirthling and I would have dueled to the death long ago. And I would have won since he's such a pansy-assed felchmonkey.
