    I think we should post the codes and the results, display and
    time of the executable. All codes should be compiled and run
    on the same machine using the same compiler.

    I don't like all the other limitations so much. When I plan and
    code an App, I don't want to think about how I can efficiently
    build it so it has 10 or less loops. It should solve the problem
    in the fastest, easiest way possible.

    In my oppinion, there should be the following criteria for
    applications in the contest. These should be given points
    by all members:

    Performance
    Algorithm
    Readability
    Standard compliance

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    So? At least JAVA somewhat resembles C/C++

    hmmm... if i had to choose... i'd go for the VB class... just since it's _not_ similar to C/++... it'd give you some perspective hopefully...

    you'd think so, wouldn't you? but

    Code:
    point, click, drag, resize,
    
    begin sub command1_click()
    label1.text = "Damn this is boring..."
    end sub
    Just doesn't seem to give me any perspective at all....

    ok, no limits whatsoever, except that programs shouldnt be enourmous, say, less then 4000 lines of code?


    this is what we will grade on,

    Stability
    Readiblitiy
    Effieciency,
    and everything else other people have said.

    lets make the competiton end in 1 - 2 weeks, giving ample time to build a program.

    As always, open to thought.

    VB isn't that bad KEN - it's quick, it's dirty, but you can write programs in it pretty easily, but no it's not as good as C/C++. J++ isn't really Java. It's Microfsoft's Java, which can cause some problems (e.g. - what would compile on the Sun SDK won't always in J++ 6.0).

    yeah it's bad. it's clumsy. There's one major lang. defect that I hate: in order to use and else, your previous if needs to be on a seperate line. I can never remember that, so I always wind up getting compiler (as close to one as you can GET in Vb..)errors

    Well you could always insert a start-up message which curses VB everytime you write a program.

    I prefer doing everything with telnet and CyberKit (occasionally NeoTrace) I've never used Sub7...doesn't mean I couldn't make one...in C or VB...
