    You cannot use that term. It is offensive to submariners.

    Is it only a matter of time before the term "debugger" (a standard tool in programming) is deemed to be offensive to male homosexuals?

    And what about male and female plugs? Are they offensive to trans people?

    Back in the late eighties, early nineties, I got taken to task for referring to an East German citizen as a DDR Burger.

    Personally, for what it's worth, I abhor ALL language censorship. Free speech and free expression is a fundamental right, in my opinion. In my personal experience it takes a certain maturity to see this, just as it takes a certain maturity to realize when something is none of one's business.

    All this revisionism is very depressing. If my ancestors did some "bad things", personally I do not feel responsible. I'm sure everyone's ancestors did some "bad things", if you go back far enough.

    If certain people think that the descendants of the people-who-did-bad-things should be accountable, then we're off into the insanity of "original sin".

    Excellent. All we need to do now is simply redesign all the mains plugs and sockets, USB plugs and sockets, HDMI plugs and sockets, audio plugs and sockets, etc etc etc...

    'n' may be accessed from data locations within a 2d matrix 'I row,J column,' if 3d matrix then k also. Your program then performs its function on it (if you pardon the expression).

    Every time you get to the variable n, you increase its value by one

    I regret to have to point it out, but this makes no sense. "Every time you get to the variable n"? What does that mean?

    If you simply want to increment n, you'd write:

    n = n + 1

    in Basic. (You could put a Let in there if you like, but in most implementations of Basic these days it's optional.)

    Why all the for-next stuff?

    You're right. The so-and-so's have been unjustly discriminated against. There are however quite a few "right so-and-so's" who are over-represented.
