this post is about nothingJune 3, 2008
Nothing is a very important concept in programming.
Nothing is just as important as something because it is the absence of something. When something is equal to nothing, would you still consider it as something? When writing a program, you may have to write a typical if-else logical block that checks for nothing. For example:
If thisPostText = “” Then
Read = True
Read = False
The interesting thing about nothing, is that it can be described in many ways.
The best thing about nothing is that it doesn’t really exist. However, logically, it’s always there; just like this post.
