Misc : Multiple IDE's

I rarely have less than 3 open at any one time covering a range of languages:

Java , C, C++ , C#, Cobol ...

What's really confusing is when you write a correct statement in the wrong language

e.g. in the Cobol IDE, I wrote:

Temp = 1;

and then you wonder why the compiler complained!

If you don't have your orientation correct, it's a puzzle because it *looks* correct. The moment you realise you are in the Cobol IDE, the penny drops.

The correct statement is of course:

Move 1 to Temp.
