    Here is another example:

    How to tie a shoe
    put shoe on
    loop lace
    pull
    pray you don't trip

    (See, I can be just as cryptic.)

    *confused*
    [email protected] was actuallying asking a question.
    Read what he wrote, its obvouse.

    copy pathtofile newpathtofile Copies file named first to location named second.


    C:\>copy c:\mydocs\mydrctry\letter~1.doc d:\worddocs

    move filename Moves a file to a new location.
    Looks just like "copy" above except for the word "move".

    You are being awfully cryptic.
    Your statements seem to be just that, statements.

    If you have a question then try to construct a meaningful question and I know somebody here will take a shot at it.

    If you have a question then ask one. Once you type in what you think to be a question, read it back aloud to yourself. Pretend to not know anything at all about the subject you just read, and ask yourself ...
    would a complete stranger know how to respond to that question with only the information you just supplied?

    Let's get back to helping the person with the problem.

    John, what does it say when you try to move it.
    Type out exactly what you wrote.

    I haven't gotten away from the point of helping him, if that is what he needs.
    I have only been asking for clarification.
    You said what he said was "obvouse".
    If it is so obvious, then you answer his question, if it is a question.

    I don't play games. I am more than willing to help.
    I have read, re-read, and read his initial message again. I don't see anything obvious.
