Answer 2 (248)

A lot of people think you should do it in a lazy way, however in the long run it will help you if you read this well eloquent wall of text that acutely describes problems you will inevitably face but not take the time to read about here; enjoy these code samples and illustrations I pulled from thin air anyway!

Love it! I come across questions like this all the time. It almost makes looking for good questions on SO not worth my time; almost. Those good questions, though, are like a breath of fresh air :-).

You should add some code into the question:

I'm not aware of how to use Google, how do I do this basic thing in Language X?


here is my MCVRE
    def function():
        var x = 2/0
