• adjust_user_minutes

    From Bigjoe@VERT to All on Sun Jan 30 14:03:00 2005
    Ok, sense I dind't get a reply, well Then I'll ask again, I still need to know how subtract a int_var that does have a value in it from the users current time left

    add bmins dopmins #This saves the adds it for later use

    adjust_user_minutes -dopmins #This line doesn't work. How do I subtract this
    from the users time left or minutes left


    Thanks

    Joe

    Ok, sence the posts that you gave me were wrong, and I said that not what I was trying to. Ok. Be like that then.

    I told you exactly what to do, gave you a code sample and all. Digital
    Man posted the exact same advice and a near-identical code sample.

    If there was anything 'wrong' with those posts it was us expecting you'd
    have the IQ to understand them. <shrug>

    And what makes you think I don't I think you don't under stand what I'm
    trying to do. Your samples force me to change the int_var again. I can't do that. I already have the int_var. I just need to subtract it from the users minutes, It's that simple. and Yes I under stude what both of you were
    saying, and like I said, I don't want to change the int_var again and have to change it back again, the sample you gave me work just find. But, Like I
    said, your way I have to change my value again, and again



    dopmins is a val that I have a value all ready in. If I use the SET dopmins -50 command I'm resetting the value. Do you under stand that. The value thats all ready in the int_var dopmins is what I want to subtract, and theres no
    way to do it.

    Joe

    P.S. Maybe I'm not the only one thats needs an IQ test

    <sigh> I'll try once more.

    You CAN NOT apply a unary minus to an integer variable as you want to do.
    And I understand that the value is in 'dopmins' already, and you don't
    want to change that. Therefore what you HAVE to do is 1) create a NEW variable, 2) set it to the NEGATIVE of 'dopmins', and 3) adjust by the
    new, negative variable. Therefore:

    # Step #1 -- create NEW variable
    INT negative_dopmins

    # Step #2 -- set it to negative of 'dopmins'
    # Note that: 0-dopmins gives -dopmins
    SET negative_dopmins 0
    SUB negative_dopmins dopmins

    # Step #3 -- adjust by
    ADJUST_USER_MINUTES negative_dopmins

    Now, this is the third time that this code fragment has been suggested to
    you as the only practical way to achieve what you want to do. Once by
    myself, once by Digital man, and now once again. If this isn't good
    enough for you, that's your business. You are free to reject it. But
    please -- spare us the "poor me didn't get a reply so now I'll come with
    some attitude" responses, OK?

    P.S. Maybe I'm not the only one thats needs an IQ test

    No, I think it *is* only you.

    This is one time that I'm forced to agree with Angus, amazingly enough. :)
