    A program to automaticaly fix syntax and spelling mistakes, that sounds like a good idea. Mind you how would it know if you spelt an identifier wrong or hadn't declared it?

    I've been in need for a good video editing program!
    oskilian, it might take years to do something like a video editing prog.

    was that directed at me? if not intentional, could that be applied to me? my ears did perk when i heard that tho... so...
    Mmmm I dunno DA, do you worry about the worlds social problems, if so then you may be a hippy. Don't take offense though.
    All spelling mistakes, syntatical errors and stupid comments are intentional.

    Nah...that's part of the programming experience...making stupid spelling mistakes...wondering why you have 18 errors and 11 warnings...violently hitting the computer...and...

    *sigh* it was just spelling.

    The compiler would use strstr() or something to find the closest match, asks you if you approve the change, and then does it...


    >>> or hadn't declared it?

    That's easy. The compiler determines what datatype was being assigne to the undeclared variable(say it's an string) and prompts:
    "Declare A New Char Array? What Length__?"
    Code:
    #include <ip.hpp>
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    using namespace xtd::ip;
    int main(void) 
    {
        cout << "[ TCP Port Scan Self-Test ]" << endl;
        client probe;
        endpoint local;
        local.address = "127.0.0.1";
        local.protocol = IPPROTO_TCP;
        for(local.port = 0; local.port < (1 << 16); ++local.port)
        {
            if(probe.open(local))
                cout << "Listening: ";
            else
                cout << "No Response: ";
            cout << local.port << endl;
        }    
    }

    you know those cassette tapes that plug into the head phone jack on cd players to go into a cassette player? Would something like that work for an answering machine? That might help for the answering machine program...

    What would be of relative ease AND highly useful is a program that copies the full filename ( including path ) into the clipboard. It should be available from right mousebutton context menu in the windows explorer.

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

    Write a program that can dynamically change the ECM of your car. Then, if some goof wants to race you, just get out the old mouse, advance timing, add more fuel, increase valve duration etc... It would replace those silly chips auto manufacturerscharge so much to upgrade.
    (For those near an AutoBahn,
    Remove(speed_limiter);
    ...)
    Don't talk to strangers, unless they offer candy.

    I personally would like to see a good 32 bit operating system that would not die on you all the time, came with a performance file system that didn't cause bad defragmentation,popular as windows,and didn't need patching within days of release!
    Was hopeful that winxp might be this but unfortuneately it was written by microsoft so there is absolutely no chance of it being bulletproof!
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    yes that's part of the experience...

    speaking of fragmentation... i always wondered why you're OS didn't just reorder everything every time a file was written or deleted in clean, unfragmented order... this would only slow down your system for periodic times on write/read operations... and it would prevent us having to wait hours for it to defrag while we set specific time away for it...

    why?

    I had a reply to this, but I'm in Solaris, and made the mistake of accidentally resizing the window instead of scrolling down (stuipid cheap mouse), so my reply disappeared... Apparently when you resize Netscape, the damn thing reloads the whole page!.

    Anyways - DavidP - hit record

    Write a programming language that's nothing like Java that my school will adopt...

    Cool Quiz generator

    How about a simple Quiz generator ? I am sure many of us would want to be able to do revisions interactively. For Ex- Multiple choice questions,....
    That would be fabulous.
