    >alot of new programmers are looking for codes such as Shutdown

    For what exactly?
    Can't remember seeing people asking about shutdowns and stuff on this board for a pretty long time.

    Hmm goodies.
    Goto

    One thing you might see in people's code are the "magic numbers and variables".
    For example:

    Code:
    while(!a||(14.2-b)!=strlen(c)) {
    cout << (drg-14);
    b++;
    jj= b - 3;
    }
    Get rid of this by using defines.
    Example:

    Code:
    #define MAX_COLUMNS 14
    
    or for variables
    
    #define NR_OF_SHIPS var_name

    No, those aren't valid console commands.
