From Rosetta Code

Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code. --Michael Mol 18:20, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

4DOS examples

Hello and welcome to Rosetta Code. I noticed you provided some examples in 4DOS Batch. However, the language tag you have chosen for syntax highlighting was »4DOS Batch« as well. While there is theoretically nothing wrong with that please bear in mind that said tag ultimately maps back into a file name. Linux and similar systems are case-sensitive in their file systems and often applications don't particularly like spaces in it. If you look around, all other language tags are using lower-case characters and no spaces in them. I changed the tag to »4dos« in the examples you provided and also put that one in the list of recommended ones here. You were right in choosing a fitting language tag to begin with though, even though there is no syntax highlighting support yet. —Johannes Rössel 10:13, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Symmetric difference

If you follow the note in the task description and call your function with:

  setA = John, Bob, Mary, Serena, 
  setB = Jim, Mary, John, Jim, Bob

Do you get the same correct result? I don't know AutoHotkey but it looks as if you would not. --Paddy3118 21:06, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

You are right. I cannot even understand how I could have overlooked that. I must be getting old. AHK code is fixed. --Wolf 21:18, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Wolf. --Paddy3118 07:18, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
