I wasn't sure if I should post this here or on the contest board. I'm jumping back into C after a VERY long absence. Basically what I'm looking for are some ideas for programs. I've looked at the contests and the challenges, those are good but I'm looking for something a little more. Something like, "using recursion write a program to do this" or "write two functions, one that does this, one that does that. Use pointers to do this".
I have a couple really good books but they're really boring to go through and they don't have any program ideas. Does anyone have a list of the programming homework they were assigned to do maybe? I would like them to start easy and gradually get harder. I can only write so many hang man games, tic tac toe and phone book programs. Basically I'm just looking for program ideas with some hints on what to use to do it.
Having source available with the solution would be nice but isn't really needed, I would like to figure it out on my own. Thanks in advance for any help and I apologize if this is the wrong board for this.
