    i need help urgently with this. I have assignments to submit n barely have time to concentrate on this. please help

    You run four computer labs in a Company. The labs are named 1 for the Executive lab, 2 for the Staff lab, 3 for the Old lab and 4 for the Support lab respectively. Each lab contains computer work stations that are numbered as shown in the table below:

    Lab Number Computer Station Numbers
    1 1-5
    2 1-6
    3 1-4
    4 1-3

    Each user has a unique five-digit ID number. Whenever a user logs on, the user’s ID, lab number, and the computer station are transmitted to your system. For example, if user 49193 logs on to station 2 in lab 3, then your system receives (49193, 2, 3) as input data.
    Similarly, when a user logs off a station, then your system receives the lab number and computer station number.
    Write a computer program that could be used to track, by lab, which user is logged onto which computer. For example, if user 49193 is logged into station 2 in lab 3 and user
    99577 is logged into station 1 of lab 4 then your system might display the following:

    Lab Number Computer Stations
    1 1: empty 2: empty 3: empty 4: empty: 5: empty
    2 1: empty 2: empty 3: empty 4: empty 5: empty 6: empty
    3 1: empty 2: 49193 3: empty 4: empty
    4 1: 99577 2: empty 3 empty

    Create a menu that allows the administrator to simulate the transmission of information by manually typing in the login of log off data. Whenever someone logs in or out, the display should be updated.
    Also write a search option so that the administrator can type in a user ID and the system will output what lab and station number that user is logged into, or “None” if the user ID is not logged into any computer station.
    create a ragged array for this information

    This site has a homework policy. Follow this link.

    The short summary: do your own homework!
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    You need to show that you aren't just pushing the homework off to us. Show us what you have done so far, and ask specific questions about what you don't understand.

    Sounds like you really need to learn good time management. Or stop going to keggers during the week.

    OK, here goes:
    1) Read through the assignment
    2) Come up with a general outline of your program
    3) Break it down into individual sections
    4) Define the interfaces between the sections
    5) Stub out the design
    6) Begin implementing the stubs, one section at a time
    7) Integrate the various sections into a whole
    8) Test
    9) Test
    10) Test
    11) Hand in on time

    And, if you can't do all those things QuantumPete suggested, accept the consequences (low marks, being told off for not doing your homework, etc).
