    No, I'd give out problems that would ensure more traffic in the C and C++ forums.

    Salem (I think) already beat you to it a couple of days ago with:

    But that's the closest to a cry for help that i've seen from a programming addict.

    edit: I think Stoned_Coder may have mentioned this one occasionally, too:

    Ok here's one, HOW DO YOU EXTRACT INFO FROM A DATABASE W/O HAVING ACCESS DIRECTLY TO THE DB?? THE ONLY ACCESS YOU HAVE IS A WEB FORM(SEARCH FORM)....

    That's an assignment I just got from my boss... I have to EXTRACT the info from that DB and put the results into our own DB... cool huh

    Feel free to use PHP or PERL/CGI and of course XML... thank you

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Prelude, wanna search for a bug in my Expression Manipulator program?

    From the cprog file archives (the same attached file I posted before, if you already have that)

    Here's the nature of the problem:
    Sometime when using the evaluate_func() function in expression.cpp (or functions called by that function), a reference gets passed which is invalid. I know this because a typeid() of it crashed the program.

    If you're interested, I'll post more details about where the bug is located, and some updated code.

    //edit: Just clarifying, the link is just to give a general impression of the bug... any bug-finding should be done with newer code.

    You want some action Prelude, tell me how the hell to use the value_comp function for associative containers. I've searched all over google and I get plenty of pages that mention it, but not one of them I have seen so far has any examples of usage for this function. It would seem that you could (maybe?) use this to iterate through, let's say a map, according to the order of the values and not the keys? But how does it work?

    I'll take a look at it.

    >You want some action Prelude, tell me how the hell to use the value_comp function for associative containers.
    It returns a constant for the container that gives you the comparison function object. The default is std::less:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <set>
    
    int main()
    {
        std::set<int> s;
    
        std::cout<< typeid(s.key_comp()).name() <<std::endl;
        std::cout<< typeid(s.value_comp()).name() <<std::endl;
    }
    Basically, key_comp and value_comp are observers; they give you information about the container, but don't effect any change.

    gotw #87 should keep you amused for a while prelude. There could be some interesting discussion on the dependant/non-dependant names issues arising from the standards looseness on this issue.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
