I am sorry, but I have not learned code yet, just getting started with Linux, so I still do not know what it means......

    There are no ulterior motives. I just thought it was a funny little bit of geek humor. And yes, in response to someone else's question it's Java. That's the language I use at work. Had I wanted to do it in C I would have said:

    Code:
    myPostCount++;

    Since you can't get a cup of coffee in the coffee lounge they give you a post instead.

    . That is quite the amusing if statement indeed.

    Welcome aboard and best of luck.

    Well, in this thread none of the code that's shown up in "Code" boxes is meant to be written anywhere, it's just a joke.

    If however you're in a thread where you ask a question and someone says "type this:" followed by a code block they usually mean to type it into a command line or terminal, such as xterm, konsole, or gterm.
