I don't understand exactly whats going on here.
If I do 37+79, I get the result 116, which is Fine.

If I do 037+079, I get 110, which I don't understand.
So next I tried...
which gives 037 as 31, and 079 as 79, hence the 110.
I thought it could be octal at first, but it isn't, and
it's not hex either.
Can someone explain why 037 is 031, and 079 is 079?

I had a question, which said when double clicking on a text field,
which event occurs.

But I then wrote a program, and when you double click a text field...
Sometimes it highlights, and its a SELECT, but other times, its just a

I guess the answer is FOCUS, but that is a vague question in my opinion.

Thanks very much if you can help with either of these.
