and what exactly do you think the other people in the forum do? They go off 
and read the documentation so that they can be sure to quote it back 
accurately to you. So you've saved yourself the bother of looking up the 
docs just so that a large number of people can all do it for you.

Please, in future, try looking in the documentation before you post: if 
you've looked and can't find what you need, that's fine, or if you've found 
it unclear and want more information that is also fine.

I've tried reading this several times and can't make sense of what you are 
trying to say?
