Program to create shapes in PPM
PLEASE HELP! I have a project in which I have to create a program that reads an input file and outputs an output file which can be opened as a PPM. The input file contains a letter referring to a shape (either a rectangle, circle, or ellipse), a color (RGB), an x and y-offset, and a radius (for circles), dimensions (rectangle), or major axis size (ellipse).
I have absolutely NO idea how to even start this project. I know that we have to use arrays and loops, but I just started programming and need help to get started. Please let me know if you have any clarifying questions.
