HOWTO: Read the Freaking Manual
The information in this article applies to:
- The ability to Read
- Basic Brain Function
This article demonstrates how to read the freaking manual, as popularised by the RTFM directive.
After asking a truly pathetic question, you are instructed to RTFM:-
*** Lamer (~SomePunk@AOL.com) has joined #visualbasic
[10:24] <Lamer> How do i [Your obvious/lame question]?
[10:25] <@oper> RTFM bitch
*** Lamer was kicked by @oper (fuckwit)
[10:27] <VBg0d> i made a irc client!!!!!!
*** assmaster83 (~email@example.com) invites you to join #something stupid
[10:27] <Guest50468> VBg0d, c00l, i made a webbrowser!!
- Locate a Manual, either in printed form or on your MSDN CD's, if you're a punk/bitch/h4x0r and don't have the MSDN collection on disk, view the online version at msdn.microsoft.com/library/
- Using either the Index or Search feature, locate a keyword relating to your question/problem
- If you're using a printed manual, flip to the page(s) as detailed in your search of the index, if you're using the MSDN library, click the link(s) in the search results window.
- Read the information. If you have problems understanding the information, read it again. Repeat until enlightenment is achieved.
