  • What is The Foo ?

    From Wikipedia

    Foo is a metasyntactic variable used heavily in computer science to represent concepts abstractly and can be used to represent any part of a complicated system or idea including the data, variables, functions, and commands just to name a few. Foo is commonly used with the metasyntactic variables bar and foobar. The word foo itself has no meaning and is merely a commonly used logical representation that is used much like the letters 'X' and 'Y' in algebra.

              Hopefully this won't get so out of hand that there will be forums called "bar", "baz", "quux", and "quuuux"

              if (!(gonzaga.win))
              {
              foobar = true;
              MessageBox.Show("ARGHGHGH!!!!!");
              return;

                  If you can't handle the confusion, stay out of the Foo!

                      Why set the foobar flag true if you are not going to use it? Why not override Messagbox.Show and send foobar as the arg and have it do the work?

                        Good call. I'm glad this board also has a built-in compiler that throws good errors and warnings!

                          But then again you could take the Perl approach.
