If you think your code is perfect, you have at least another level to master before calling yourself a programmer.

    Just let the program exit normally. This code will keep doing things until the input is "q" or "Q" then the program will exit.

    Given that your PC is not an Android device and will not have the Android system API available, it follows that you will need an emulator if you want to run an Android app on your PC. The advantage of an emulator is that you can emulate all sorts of different devices, versions of Android, and display sizes. The disadvantage is that it is not a real device and may not be a 100% accurate emulation of any device.

    I can understand it for businesses who are a bit out of town, as Dave says. I worked at a place some years back and their office was pretty big and on an industrial park a couple of miles out of the town where all the shops and cafes were. They had a decent on site restaurant and that was ok given the location. The only other option you had was the food van that rolled by mid morning. What they did do though was have a free shuttle bus running to and from town every lunch time so you weren't completely disconnected.

    I agree though that it makes less sense when your office is right in town with all the cafes and things on your doorstep. My current work place has a kitchen with microwaves, fridges, tea and coffee making things and tables to eat your lunch which I don't think is what Jeanne categorises as a 'cafeteria' in this discussion. That's pretty standard in offices.

    I reviewed this title a couple of months before we ran the promotion on CodeRanch and I really liked it. So much so that I awarded it 10 out of 10 horseshoes.

    Yes. It was December 2015.

    There's a good chance your query would be much simpler if you were to use the EXCEPT Operator.
