    What's the best program you have ever made?

    What's the best program that you have made, be it in any language, what's the one that you are most proud of?

    Mine - since i'm fairly new to c, i haven't made anything i'm proud of without the aid of a book or a post, i'll use a vb example. I made a visual basic program (using API) to change the from name when using 'net send'.

    What's yours?

    Regards,
    Kevin

    My thesis... which involves actually about 10 VB/eVB apps... one for data collection at electric substations, and the other as a member information tool that uses Sql Server CE to display and search through a member DB.

    I'm considering it a software suite, so it's all sort of one thing.

    I wrote a program in VB to play rock, paper, scissors.

    Seriously, I helped write a DMS a couple years ago. (edit: It was in Paradox and VB)

    1. an mp3 player for a company that is now gone.
    2. an activex control for display of 3d vectors streamed from a server that we also wrote.

    Still working on actualy.
    It will be an mp3 player (It should end up like winamp more or less). It will have an RF remote control .So I can control it from my bed or an other room.

    But I had to put this project on hold because I have too much other stuff I have to do first.

    the company had purchased the rights to use a bunch of source code from somewhere. MP3 to Wav conversion mostly. Then we played through DirectSound if it was available and if not we used Windows sound APIs.

    edit: the MP3 to wav was in small chunks, not the entire file in case you were wondering.

    But first you must know how to use gambits such as the avalanche and crescendo. More importantly you need to master the paper sandwich!

    ... and don't forget to read the safety info before playing:
    1. Safety First! Always ensure that all players have removed sharp jewellery and watches
    Sounds like a blood sport to me!
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Now that link is just scary

    Anyway, the program I like best is one I never finished. It's a IRC log parsing program that reads in the chat log and pops out an HTML webpage full of stats from that log such as most active times (bar graph per 15 minutes), who used smileys the most, talked the most, etc...
    It was my 2nd ever windows app, so there was a lot of learning, also first ever C program outside of class, so even more learning there using functions I had never used before.
