Thank you. Very useful. –  amarprabhu Dec 4 '13 at 8:36
Here at UX.stackexchange.com it is preferred that answers with links should summarise the linked content. This is so that your answer will continue to be useful despite any future link-rot. –  Erics Dec 4 '13 at 8:51
Yes, an answer should actually answer the question, not just signpost people off elsewhere to go and find it for themselves. Links are fine for citing as the source or as the reference behind an answer, but you need to provide a full answer as well. (Although to be fair it doesn't help that the question itself was far too broad to be able to reasonably answer in this format in the first place.) –  JonW Dec 4 '13 at 9:02
that's why I included the links... –  Cristian Dec 5 '13 at 10:32
