    My first assignment...

    Last night I had to think out and write my first program. It wasn't coded in a language but rather it was written in English, I forget what that's called. I like the first few steps in the cycle with the planning and all. It makes it so much easier to write out the program. You know what you need to do and you won't go off on tangents.

    I hate the first few steps, at least for classes. They're always required and don't help much until bigger programs.

    Heh, my 2nd Java assignment was to use loops to give all the primes up to a given number.

    Program writing/testing time: 10 minutes
    Flowchart making/other crap time: 40 minutes

    Is that just wrong to anyone else?

    Mine was just to get the user to input 3 char and then display "Hello char_1, char_2, char_3". It was pretty easy since I'm not writing it in a programming language.

    Yeah, you could come up with your own syntax! It will always work since it doesn't matter how you write it. I use to do these things when creating image/sound compression formats and other stuff.
