start using the links at the top of the page and research these important questions yourself.

In this case, you can look at the syntax diagram for the STRING instruction and you will see what optional parms are available.


by the way, answer is no.

Hi Dick !

It never ceases to amaze me. The "quality" of questions still did not have reached the bottom.

I'm allways surpised that these people seam to be afraid of asking their workmate, sitting just in front of the other desk towards them.

I could not comprehend, why it's more convenient to start a post in a forum for a quiet small matter, than asking a per at the company and get
the answer just right in time.

UmeySan,

The work atmosphere in some areas is a little different than what we experience in the States or Europe.

The atmosphere is adversarial - someone is always dropping dime on someone else. Ask a question and the word spreads that you don't know anything.

Lot of Resume fraud. Very poor management practices. Culture.

This thread is not so bad. Check out the COUNT(*) problem thread if you want to 'reach near the bottom'.

Dick, ...ok, right, but:

The mere thought, that our big corporations here in Europe ore the States could outsource their IT to such companies gives me the shudders.

Last week, i got the inforamtion, that the biggest company for producing
the ABS-System for cars here in Germany, will let develop the ABS-Software in Ungary. Imagine some drunken Hungarian programming in C++. Keep that in mind during pressing the break of your Daimler, wanting to decelerate the speed from 260Kmh.

And Dick, just a personal inquiry:

Varel, isn't it a city in northern Germany, in a region called Friesland.
Just asking, cause I booked a wellness-weekend in a Hotel called
"Waldschlößchen Mühlenteich". Must be near your location.
A short reply would be nice.

The real fact is,

In Indian peoples are ready to teach anything(what ever we known) to any body at any time boss.

When compare between other countries environment we are suffering lot and also now only India is developed little bit like developed countries so that still you can see so many poor peoples in India and also we don't have sufficient money to learn good education(practice as you said).

I don't know yours working culture..But here so many IT peoples are spending more times to their work(more than 15 hours per day).

I think you peoples are lucky!!!

If any thing wrong please correct me.

Regards,

Morning ashimer !

Let me deliberate on your question. Your statements are valid!

Maybe one personal fact before. As a SystemConsultant, I'm working in that buisiness now for much more than 30 Years. I got in Touch with that buisiness during my time at the Allied Forces. Spending a lot of years there, could be the reason, that often i become a bit overbearing and cynical.

But after the Time at the AirForce i went to the banking business and had worked for mostly all banks now here in Germany. By time, more and more i was engaged in mamagement projects.

And believe it or not, the persons that have the pover to decide to adopt another course, they don't knew much from our business here in IT. They only look at the balance sheet on December 31. It-Quality, It-Infrastructure, It-Security, ...what's that. Only expense factors!!!

Lets take a litte yourney right into the head of a german manager of one of the biggest banks. Let us visualize his gloomy thoughts:

Ahh...,all these strange people working in these It-Devisions.

Some of them, young, energetic, flexible, well dressed, all time working.
Well, these we could use. They will spend all their lifetime and their health for the benefit of our company.

And when i say our company, then i also mean my management bonus, twice a year. Oh by the way, i have to make a little note, that i have to get in touch with my personal car dealer. My Daimler is about 2 years old now. Think, i must get a new one.

Oh, and then the the others working there, the older ones, Jeans and sneakers, most of time consuming cigarretts and coffee, sometimes the feet on the table and the keyboard on theire knees, working at night. I can't make head nor tail of it.

And they all get a lot of money. For what? What are they producing? Can we touch and sell that product? No! They allways say, we need it to consolidate our empire and our position in world marked. But can we believe them.

Oh, I rember Sunday morning, when my daughter's new friend told me
at brunch, just after we had that famous tennis match in our country club, that his father read an supreme article of a distinguished journalist in a computer-journal, that "outsourcing it-divisions" will save money. Perhaps, this could be, what we also have to do. Best would be, i will let arrange a conference where i will announce our new business decision.

Yeah, really, we have to outsource !!!

>> Then mamager is now operating the intercommunication system to get in touch with the perpetual secretary.

Ähh, Sandra, please one Coffee an one of my cigars, and by the way, please make some inquiries about the apprehension of outsourcing. And Sandra, after that, it would be nice if you could book that nice suite in that little dinky hotel, that we had last month. I think i have to celebrate
that essential strategic decision i made with you today.

So well ashimer, and all the other young guys out there, you think i'm a little out of touch with the real world. Not literally!!!

Perhaps i'm getting grey and old now, but my five senses are working well. Ok, i'm allway very snappy and sometimes bitchy.

But this szenario is not far away from presence.

And, that's just between the two of us, I've got the information, that this little story is nearly the same, what happend years a go at the 24.floor of the "DeutscheBank" in Frankfurt Germany. :-)

So better quality at a lower price, really doesn't matter. Also that won't come true. Still my point of view.

To waste money and compromise on quality. Nobody does not spare a thought about that apect. You get nearly the same product for cheaper money. Approved and extremly tested, staying firm under daily pressure,
efficiently coding, oh shit, it does not matter.

Saving money and earning personal profite still is the self-fulfilling prophecy!


Hi Sinkaravelan !

>> IT-people working more than 15 hours a day.

Ok my friend, when i had been a memeber of believers, i also worked that way. In one international company i was a leading member of the SAP-Systemprogramming-Division. We are used to work also every third Weekend from Friday 15:00 till Monday morning 09:00 strait throuht. So please, don't tell me anything about working hours. Also during a nomal week we had been called during nighttime to solve some problems if they happend. Some nights you got about 5 calls. Sometimes there was the need to return to work quiet in the mioddle of the night.

I Think, all the older ones of us could remember these times.
Some proudly, some with fear. I'm quiet in the middle.

My personal result of these times: hardattack, beeing 35 years old.
For what. Really not for myself or for my Swiss bank account.

So well, you believers, go on, give up your personal life for the glory of the company, you are working for. You will get the medal of honour and someone will throw a shabby golden watch upon your cheap poor casket.


>>I think you peoples are lucky!!!

Not really at all! Only the nonbelievers and the lepers in our buisiness.

Life became hard here too. Pressure is still growing. Ruthlessness is a religion. The relentless pursuit to gain power, fame and wealth is becoming more and more the only aspect of life for some of the new generation. The important thing is that you have your Omega on the left wrist and the key of of your new BMW 320 Cabrio in the right hand, still wearing that famous Cardin or Armani suit.

It's only another form psychological pressure.

Why i'm so cynical? Cause i don't bother about these insignia of prosperity. I can drive my Jag just wearing jeans, sneakers and a simple shirt.

Ok, during buisiness meetings i also have to dress up myself. I have made the experience, that whatever shit i'm telling, i gain credence by wearing a black or grey suit. Also in fact, that's its the biggest shit my bedlam mind could think of.

Perhaps i allways strive against the stream. Think, I have to discuss that aspect next time with my personal therapist. Yeah really, i have do to that. But..., would become difficult. She's a blonde with big ****. And getting personally allways ends up in another way.


All right, then guys, spare me the details of some consequential vapouring
about some aspects of our job. I think i come thru al lot of ups and downs during my life. Also having some executive positions. i have a hard-edged view about our situation, and i'm glad that i found my way to come to terms with life.

And now, as all times when as my gift for writing poetry just to gains the mastery, i will end up as usual:

Oh good, I love that job. I Think, i have to thank you ervery day for having the chance and personal liberty to what i do. There are only a chosen few out there, getting princely paid for all this feeblemindedness.

I hope i made some of us thinking about the other aspects of life.

So, now i close up work, keeping in mind, that i could charge my customer for for distributing my spiritually wisdoms instead of working hard on the projekt.

Morning UmeySan...

Sir, with lots of respect , I never meant to offend you ...

I just want to put across the fact that , regardless of the location if one has to survive or excel in his own field he has to compete with lot of people who are above or upto his standards ...

I am not experienced as you ... not even a fraction of the experience you have but in my stint of 5 years i have worked for lot of fortune companies and have travelled places ... the thing is that compared to other countries competition is much more here in India .. this is purely out of experience ... if you need to survive you need to beat your peers in work ... im not talkign abt backstabing ...

when i started my career i faced lots of problems with what i had to do daily ... i used to consult my seniors but their help was limited owing to various factors .. they might be busy with their work ... might not have time to attend us ... then i stopped consulting them and started trying out to solve each problem on my own .. this approach did help me a lot ...

Now atleast im in a position to help my juniors with their problems and even has got the confidence to answer a few in this great forum ...

The fact you are trying to convey is correct .. the Developer shud try to solve his problem by himself and then go for help ... even i do advise my juniors to do the same ...

But when such a forum and so many experts are available nobody will ever do tht .. laziness ...

You guys are doing a great stuff and kudos for that !!!!

Have a great day

Hi ashimer !

Don't mind, i did not felt offended by you. Not at any time.
Sorry if i conveyed that impression.

Most of the time it's me, who is offending others by telling my
rigorous and radical political views about our buisiness.

So i'm glad to get that feedback from you. I allway think, that there has to be something more, than only discuss programming problems in a chemically pure way. And sometimes a bit smart-alecky and boastful.

So now, i got another leading point of your daily little fights at work.

But one more question about your predication:
"If you need to survive you need to beat your peers in work"

Isn't it convulsing you? Who is responsible for such a behavior?
Why do all participate without more ado?

Yeah, i know, to much postanalytic philosophy at this time of the day.
Time to check out.

Won't be back tomorrow. Friday, it's my time to to negotiate my own peace with my restless, poor and black soul.

Respect & nice weekend, Sir !
