Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V

In a local forum, someone asked "What is the most favored way of your web-programming?"
The reply was “Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V” and “If someone is good at “Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V”, he/she
can be a good programmer.”

Lol, what?

Ctrl+C = copy and Ctrl+V=paste

I know, but thats a joke? I get it, but its not really funny.

It all depends on what your definition of a “good” programmer is though, doesn’t it?

Clearly, to go from “good” to “great”, you need to know how to use Ctrl-X and [del] as well! :stuck_out_tongue:

PS: You can read all about it in my new book “The Ctrl-A-B-C’s of Programming”… :smiley:


When I saw that post several years ago, it was was so funny to me. It pinpointed
something. It might not be a joke; it’s rather paradox or sarcastic.

Thanks for your remarks. I agree with you, and that’s what I mean.
You showed me how to joke.

What’s the meaning of Lol ? I am still a new comer.

Laughing out loud.

laugh out loud


Thats how i always started :stuck_out_tongue: haha, and I still do if I’m too lazy after reading a forum on how to accomplish a certain task. Haha.


Most funny story ever
thanks so much

Didn’t really get it :frowning:

It’s so fun , thanks so much

Mrs Grace loosen up jokes. Even I read that only the aid of an interpreter, understood this joke!


Thanks Umar. It’s interesting to see pros and cons of replies.
I just baked a plate of pizza. I wanna give you one piece.

So basically if someone else has already done the work that makes you good?

CSS_Man, sometimes Yes. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V can be one way of recyling open sources, which is
a usual practice among programmers including me. However, my opinion is that Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
can help only when he/she has a basic knowledge in their field of programming.
