    Thumbs down The Horror....

    I was in the computer lab at my school today...and being the nerd that I am, I noticed Dev C++, and opened it up.
    Clicked through to create a new source file.

    I was shocked.

    Warning, some may have difficulty with the next line of code. Viewer Discretion advised.
    I present to you the first line in this nearly blank source file:
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    I kid you not, this is what could-be programmers are being taught at my high school.

    I was horrified!!! (Thankfully I'm not doing any programming at the school! That was a close call!)

    hey, "#include" is a perfectly appropriate pre-processor directive
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
    I dont have a menu for it or anything.

    I'm surprised. Is it a really old version of DevC++? I have it on my home computer but I really just use it for its copy of gcc and I never use wizards to generate code so I wouldn't have seen that.

    Change schools immediately, and alert the police of your observations as soon as possible!

    I was on the network drive at this tech school I went to...got into some of the tests or test preparation assignments, unsure which they were.

    Anyways near the end of the course(they had it all divided up neatly in timeframes by folder) they still had them working on loops, in a C++ course. And almost everything I saw was void main.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    My school is too dumb to teach c++. They have an advanced computer class 2 but its all web. Even though I may not be very skilled with html and whatnot. I assure you I know 3 times as much as any of those kids. I can't be on the web team because I have to pass the other comp classes. I'm not terribly good at typing and we stupid crap in excel and word. After looking at the source code of our web site I have concluded they copy and pasted half of it from other web sites.
    My computer is awesome.

    system("exit");

    Duh, how else are you supposed to quit the program?
    Just Google It. √

    I always thought you quit the program by clicking the [x] in the corner, and then clicking Yes on the dialog box :P

    Pulling the power cord works too (or the battery as applicable).
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    You do realize, there's a power button at the front and a power switcheroo at the back. They offer better compatibility with the latest MS OS.
