    New to C?

    Just thought I'd give a bit of advice to all the people posting on here who are new to C. I am new also and I know that if you post your code on here (in the proper way) then people will rush to help you.

    However, I have had a hard time doing assignments set for me and I have found that solving a problem with the least amount of help gives you an enormous sense of achievement. Having some kind expert on this board write the program for you will get you good marks but when you get a job you may find yourself out of your depth.

    What I am basically trying to say is read your notes a good few times and try examples. Draw flow charts detailing exactly how the program must logically flow. Then start your programming, perhaps consulting examples from the web or text book.

    I guarantee you will feel better if you achieve a good mark from something you do on your own.

    And please, read the rules for this forum before you post and avoid annoying the regulars!

    If people followed your advice, I wouldn't have anything to do...

    God forbid you actually having to answer questions without going into a rant.

    I would hate if that happens. People might actually figure out I don't know anything about C if I have to answear questions. No I rather just pretend to know things and only complain about code tags and void main()

    What exactly are you implying?

    That I answear 75% of the question on this board with 6 different answears(atleat it feals that way)

    1. Void main is wrong don't use it.
    2. Only seed rand() once
    3. if(string1 = string2) will not work the way you think it works
    4. Use the boards search
    5. Read the FAQ
    6. Use code tags

    It is the other 25% that makes me like this place.
