    Hello fellow novices,
       I just uncovered a minor land mine. If you search this forum for a particular function, it will return results with the keywords you type highlighted in yellow. If you type everything lowercase, every instance of that return, both in the Subject and Body, at least in Safari 3.2.3 will return with the same lowercase. When you go to cut and paste some example code, it might fail if the CamelBack spelling does not match the correct syntax from the SDK.
    Example:
       A search for "SysTime" will lead to a handy example posted by Charles:
    println(GeGetSysTime()->year);
    println(GeGetSysTime()->month);
    println(GeGetSysTime()->day);
       but the exact same search in lower case will return the exact same example with the following syntax errors S=s and T=t, i.e., search for "systime"
    println(GeGetsystime()->year);
    println(GeGetsystime()->month);
    println(GeGetsystime()->day);
    Try to run this in C4D and you'll get an error... even though Charles typed it in correctly, every result gets modified by your specific search syntax.
       Reload the page and you get the proper syntax back.
    Just a warning so you don't lose too much time.
    Cheers,
    Graham

    Fun, isn't it? Yes, this is the standard way that the search works here. I still think vBulletin would be a good update... ;)
