It's passive voice. Blows my mind that this thread has been going on all day and nobody has said anything about that.

I canât say this right but I want to say something along the lines that âviaâ puts emphasis on the access to a function rather than the means to function or the function. In an instruction, there is the how and there is the what, and then there is how the how gets to the what. I canât find the right way to say this. My point is that via puts (or can put) the emphasis in the wrong part of the instruction.
