    He he... my first real proggie opened up a file on a sage accounting system and decoded the file to get passwords and logon names. I already worked out how to decode the file, but I used C to do it for me..... Took about a week to do and it was on reflection the worst bit of coding imaginable........ I didnt know how to search directories for this file and so resorted to using System() with dos commands and then output them into another text file to read.....

    Sloppy... but it did work.....

    So if that's how you started, what do you do know????

    Should we be aware?

    Hmm, I believe my first program that was not a school project was a text based RPG battle engine. I think it was pretty fun, you gained levels, developed new attacks, and there were a bunch of enemies chosen at random that gained levels with you so it was always a challenge.

    I may rewrite it someday. Seeing as how I tossed the code when I got my new computer :P

    my first program was a nice presentation about perception for my father, it was programmed in VB, I really was surprised with my work, it used some 3d routines and had some paint programs embedded, some anims and music; that was what I call my first serious program, the, when I learned C, my first program was (Oskilian, tell me if I am wrong) a word mixer, very confusing, the next step was a program just like the one described by Garfield, but I used a 3d array instead of the pointers, cool prog.

    because you assisted to my C classes and you received the same problems, so, my first C program was the first problem in the guide of problems, remember?.
