    Unhappy As with...

    "As with the same command, the Rcommand must be followed a number"

    "as with" wants to say:"like?" or what?


    Thanks

    Re: As with...

    I think it probably means 'like'; but it doesn't mean much unless 'the same command' has a clearly defined meaning in the context. I imagine it might mean 'like the same command (but without the R prefix)' - if that's right, then it should be '"As with the same command, the R<command> must be followed a number", because <command> is a variable.

    Does "As with" wants to say: mean "like" or what something else?

    Thanks.
    It means that the same rule applies to the "recommand" (whatever that is) as applies to the same command (whatever that means!)

    Please see my corrections in red.

    Ny guess is that 'Rcommand' isn't a typo. For example, there are commands such as ADD, MULTIPLY, and so on, and 'RCOMMANDS' do the same thing but in an 'R' sort of way (whatever that is... - it might stand for 'and add a record to a Report file'). Ils sont fous ces programmeurs!

    Re: As with...

    Thank you all. Since I summarized the original context to avoid prattling (I'm not sure if it's the proper verb). By the way the original one is: "As with the same command, the Recall command must be followed by a number" I do apologize for that great mistake. I'm supposed to type "by" wich actually was omitted cause I typed in hurry. Thank you.

    You'll find the forum much more useful if you don't type in a hurry, and you check your words carefully before you actually post.
