I wrote:

I suggest you point to what A should return and match[ing?] it with the output of B in README

My complete suggestion is:

I suggest you that you point to what A should return and say the user to match it with the output of B in README

Does my original sentence convey this meaning, if not what are the mistakes?

  • Should the person who "points to A" also "match with B" or is there an additional person called the "user" involved? – dubious Apr 15 at 8:44
  • @dubious the user must match! I guess my first sentence meant the person who points to A must match!! – Ahmad Apr 15 at 8:50
  • @dubious could using "matching" in first sentece says that it's in continuation of what should be done. – Ahmad Apr 15 at 8:52

Honestly, i think there's a better version of both sentences: "I suggest that you point to what A should return and tell the user to match it with the output of B in README."

Here are my reasons:

1- when you're pointing to the content, you should use tell instead of say based on the British Dictionary
2- "you" after suggest in this sentence seems unessential and abundant.
