    Timecard Challange

    Not trying to take over Prelude's glory here but we haven't had anything for a while.

    So here goes. The basic purpose is to create a program that gets the start and end times for a person's work day and calculate how much time they worked.

    Newbie
    To Do: Get the start and end times from the user and calculate the hours worked per day. Then calculate the total time worked for one week. Print a summery screen, such as "Day 1 worked X hrs..."
    To assume: The user begins and ends their shift on the same day. The user will be entering the hours in 24 hour format.

    Novice
    To Do: Same as newbie, however calculate the amount of regular time and amount of overtime.
    To assume: The work day is 8 hours, any time over this is overtime. The work week is 40 hours, any time over this is overtime. (Note if a person works overtime on a single day but falls below 40 hrs for the week they still get the overtime)

    Intermidate
    To Do: Same as novice, however get the time format from the user beforehand. Ie ask if they want to enter the hrs in 24 or 12 mode.

    Intermidate +
    To Do: Same as Intermidate but do not assume that the begin and end times will be on the same day (think graveyard shift)
    To assume: No 24 hour shifts

    Intermidate ++
    To Do: Same as Intermidate +, but find out from the user when overtime begins. (Some people work 10 or 12 hr shifts on normal time)

    Advanced
    To Do: Same as Intermidate ++. Also Get the full time from the user and from format determine if 12 or 24 hr time.
    To assume: 12 hr time will be inputted as "hh:mm", 24 hr time will be inputted as "hhmm".

    Advanced +
    To Do: Same as Advanced but also calculate double overtime. Have to ask user when double time begins. Also deal with the user not having an overtime period. (Example: my sister in law is a nurse, she works 12 hr shifts. After 12 hrs she goes into double time, with no overtime period)


    Post source code here. This is more of an exercise then it is a challange so I won't be looking for the "winner." If Prelude or one of the mods want to judge thats fine.

    Note: Just in case you are wondering: NO! This isn't a school assignment. Not even in a C class This is purely for fun.

    That's not a time clock. A time clock simply takes a users name/id and then clocks them in or out accordingly. What you are proposing is a subunit of that functionality - a time editor.
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    who said anything about a timeclock? I said timecard. And on my time card I have to enter the time I started, time I ended, and length of lunch (and unpay time). Also have to enter the amount of time in regular, ot, and double time.

    And damn I forgot to add in factoring in upay (ie lunch) time.
