    not sure. the question seems to be asking about programs that we've completely written ourselves. most of my complex programs are team things. If that's included, I have 3d file viewer and client-server interface to said file viewer under my belt. if not, uh..... compression utility? opengl plugin?

    I wrote a fully working application using the bsp format and bsp trees to quickly render a 3d scene, then I woke up. Seriously though, when I learn how to do that, then I will be able to say I've written something complex.

    shadow can you please change your signature. its really annoying the hell outta me!

    the most complex program i ever wrote, is well, still being created. its a app i call DarkCode, and its a simple to use text editor and can save is almost any file format that includes using text. php, html, c++, C#, Python, you name it.

    The most complex program I've written was a system of apps written in html/javascript and c++. It allowed a user to enter in information in several categories, and to even select pictures and files, all of this was dumped into an xml file, which was interpreted by the html/javascript page. That page would dynamically point itself to whatever student you wanted to get the portfolio (is what we called it) from. It hasn't been fully implemented yet, but all the tests checked out and it's ready to go once the school gets a new server next year.

    I suppose the only reason it was complex was becuase of all the data transformation and translation I did......if you want strictly c++ apps I did an app that basically searches text files, but it was kind of tricky due to each one's immense size (some up to 300k) and there's about 10,000 of them in some directories...got it to search pretty quick, i put a smart search algorithm of sorts into it. Basically if it searches so far and it hasn't found what it's looking for, with the way the files were set up it probably won't find anything so it moves on...knocks the seek time down to seconds instead of hours
    PHP and XML

    - wait, do you mean it can just save with any extension you want, or it actually saves those files as differently structured types? Because, AFAIK, those are all just flat-text files. I mean, you're never going to hear anyone complaining that they can't convert their text file to a PHP file...



    Most of the programs I write never really get finished...I usually find out some new aspect of coding or get some new hair-brained idea, and I write up some test code for it and never really polish it off into anything nice.

    I guess I have written a few cool things, though - the function organizer for Hillbillie (which I found out actually has bugs in its counting and edit procedures), which was kind've a mini-database. I also wrote a Power Point-esque slide viewer, with full-blown transformations and the like..

    And once I got fed-up with not being able to find a decent ASM IDE, so I just wrote my own. It had a memory leak that took me a month to track down, and a file-handling error that was the death of the project. I still used it now-and-again until I reformated my computer, though.
