“If I was” or “If I were”. Which is more common, and which is correct?
Should I say "If I were [something]" or "If I was [something]?"
This came up because I am writing a comment above a function in some code. Here's the comment, basically:
// Shuts down everything // Will stop the process if it was running function Shutdown()
So should that say "if it was running" or "if it were running?"
