Which can imply that SWISH++ can not be used to achieve the
functionality you want to others reading your message. Such is
not the case.

The owners of the SWISH-E mailing list have graciously allowed
it to be used to discuss SWISH++ also since they are related
software products in terms of functionality.
In the case of SWISH-E, on-topic items would most certainly
include building it for a particular platform and environment
(in SWISH-E's case, a C compiler rather than a C++ compiler).
Other on-topic items appeared to have been indexing and
searching topics in general (for possible new features).
As far as incompetence, it's a statement of fact, not an
insult. I freely admit for example that I am incompetent at
brain surgery, physics, chemistry, civil engineering, and an
infinite numer of other careers and, if I attempted to perform
any of them, I would rightly be labeled "incompetent" by any
practioner in the field.
