Re: "Make code better, again"

How is it 'better' to leave the computer running when it's not needed? Assuming this is the desired behaviour, why is it 'better' to reboot the computer each time instead of using a loop? And assuming that is the desired behaviour, why is it 'better' to have the call to os.reboot() repeated inside the if blocks instead of once after the if?— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Loop uses more memory. Also, there's no difference, do you really care that much? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
I reverted changes from two users. This guide is supposed to be a reasonably low level tutorial. Simply slapping code on a page is not a tutorial, hence the previous version with screen shots is more noob friendly. Secondly, the latter version used variables that don't need to be variables. 14:07, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

I think this can be more "Noob" friendly

i am a noob and have just started to use Computer Craft. I was learning how to make a password protected lock and i understood all of it, until it said, " Now to start it, we have the computer call the function after it declares it." This confused me very much and i was hoping someone could clarify or edit the page to be even more "Noob" friendly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tpomdreams (talkcontribs)

Try the 'Better / Alternative Code', you might understand that more. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Needs work

Should be formatted better and especially with the code and the comments.
