I appreciate your frankness.

My apologies if I offended you, that was never my attention. But I think

it is quite normal to give a pointer to a tutorial, a book, a reference,

a website or whatever where people can be taught the basics of something

when the basics seems to be the something that is missing. I too have
had pointers to tutorials when other experts found that I was lacking
some basics and I usually was happy about it. If you're not, I'm sorry
about it.

But maybe I was too harsh in my wording. English is not my native tongue

and sometimes I can be a bit strong in my opinion. So once more, my
apologies if I offended you.

In general, and I can only speak for myself here, I answer questions,
basic and advanced, when I feel like it, when I have the time and when
the asker is clear and to the point enough with his or her question. If
the latter is not the case I tend to ask for clarification. Sometimes I
repeatedly do that when my questions are not answered. I believe that's
a good thing because some people just don't know how to formulate a
question correctly, for instance because of lack of understanding of the

terminology involved.

I found your second question very general in nature, hence I pointed to
a tutorial which, imho, explains what you are after.

Your first question was very to the point, hence you got a direct

Kind regards and no hard feelings,

PS: hopefully others give you a better "feel" on this list, all in all,
we want everybody to be happy, right?
