For some reason I can't pass number 2. I just don't get it. I realize what's being added twice but whatever I put in won't do anything.

I've tried
Lol Not gonna tell you! Sorry didn't post in case it's a spoiler.

In the end I think the extbasic 2 just glitched on me. :(
--Advertising's a no-no. :)

Omg thank you soo much! I spent the last 30 minutes tearing apart the shell script and learning about sed for ext basic 5 and I just rushed learning about sed too much. I actually already had your reference open at the time I just didn't read the correct area. Ext Basic 5 is so simple I can't believe I missed it. Thanks man!

Hey guys, I feel like a complete moron, but what is the syntax for the input? Specifically number 1. I know how to crash it (that's easy) but what is he looking for input wise? Everything I've tried so far has just taken me back to the same page. Thanks ahead!

currently on extbasic 3. i don't get it at all...
according to my interpretation, this is how it goes...

BEGIN no.treal :
variable BEGIN is not a real number.

CREATE int AS 2 :
variable CREATE = 2

DESTROY int AS 0 :
variable DESTROY = 0

ANS var AS Create + TO :
ANS = Create + TO

out TO :
output TO

firstly, WHAT??? what in the world is TO in the first place??? and what happened to BEGIN? and why bother to output TO?? and what is the use of ANS if you don't use it??? plz gimme some hints as to how off my interpretation was...

[EDITED]
ok, i thought up of a few interpretations, but nothing makes sense anymore. can someone plz point me in the right direction? my head hurts...

CREATE int AS 2 :

Or is it creating the variable "AS", and setting it to 2?

it seems you would have to learn assembly to even understand it...

I completed extbasic 3 by guessing, but I still don't get it. I tried to analyze it, but I felt like I was grabbing at air. First, I'm not sure what "AS" is. I thought it was a variable, but then how come it was assigned a value of 2 and later a value of 0? What was the function of "DESTROY"? (Again, I can guess, but I'm not really sure) My biggest conflict was with "TO," which wasn't declared ahead of time. It seems at the very least, this program would receive a "unknown variable TO not defined" error. There was also the CREATE/Create confusion. The instructions say that it's case sensitive. Does that mean CREATE and Create are not the same thing?

Anyway, I completed the mission, but if anyone can think of a way to provide an explanation without spoilers, that'd be great.
