    Hello!

    I have the same assignment. For me, this is a part of a school project and we need to do it in C, now, I do not want any posted code, I was just curious if anybode had previous knowledge of this kind of problem in C and maybe could warn me about common mistakes or even point me to any helpful resource?

    Regards,
    Janne

    Like with any programming problem, start by getting a pen and paper and draw a flow chart of what you think the program should do from start to finish.

    Well thank you for that input, will definitely help me get going.

    I did not start a new thread because it would be superfluous.

    The moderators of this board beg to differ. Our rule is to always start a new thread. We refer to attaching a new inquiry to an existing thread as hijacking, no matter how similar the topic.

    I am new to this forum. I asked ONE question and you asked me to draw a flow chart and pretty much get (expletive deleted) out of here. Good luck to you! :)

    Beenthere meant no disrespect. He was simply making the same request of you that he would have made of any other member to this forum that intentionally or unintentionally dropped a post in the middle of an active thread.

    The AAC forum moderators have a responsibility to manage the flow of each existing thread and to maintain the thread on-topic.

    Granted your post was on the same topic but each member is encouraged to start their own thread so that their request for assistance/information can be discussed in the context of the issues peculiar to their situation.

    We are here to assist all comers and we hope you have not written off the forum as a place to seek assistance in the future.
