I asked a question about the C++ FileSystem Interface of a program
called BOOST. These people flooded me with stupid and idiotic
messages about how irrelevant that question was.
Beware of them.

Put me in the list, I also think your question is off-topic.

Karl,

You are obviously annoyed. Take a chill pill for a moment and listen to
what these guys are saying.

Basically they're saying there is a better forum for your question.

Most people on this list want to answers to plain vanilla C++ questions.
boost is a completly separate library with maintainers and advocates and
all kinds of people who would like to help you that use a completly
separate forum. The question you have is most relevant to the boost forum.

No big deal !

Peace
G

Sure, Julian. Thank you for your enlightening answer to my
question. Without people like you we would be breeding sharks in the
forest.

Gianni,

Wouldn't it be better if my message was left there alone and
unanswered? Aren't you in favor of economizing space and bandwidth?
Simply, if you don't know the answer, DON'T ANSWER!

Of course, Allan, whatever suits YOU is relevant, right?
So, you are also a specialist on C++, aren't you? What a stupid
and idiotic argument. What is more relevant in a C++ group
than reading and manipulating the filenames of a directory?
ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION before you waste more bandwidth next time.

I just read your original post, and this is your question

"...and I have no idea how to install this filesystem on my IBM-compatible
machine. Does anyone up here know how to do this?"

ok, this is not even about programming!! It is about configuration of a
piece of software.
Anyway, to be the tiniest bit helpful I typed "boost" into google and the
first page lead me to a newsgroup appropriate to you:

news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.boost.devel

John,

"Wouldn't it be better if my message was left there alone and
unanswered? Aren't you in favor of economizing space and bandwidth?
Simply, if you don't know the answer, DON'T ANSWER!"

Obviously, you never got the mssage either, right?

Now you are going to teach me WHAT to ask, Allan?
Why don't you just say: Sorry, perseus, I don't know the
answer to your question. Or, even, better, just say nothing!
