    Most pointless idea ever: Interpreter

    Here's something that'd be a waste of time and space to code: a console app interpreter where it reads text lines.

    cin >> char[];

    and then it has the world's longest switch statement, creating an interpreter.

    Actually, I think that the most pointless idea ever was the idea to start a thread on this topic.

    >>Most pointless idea ever
    This thread was never going to fly with a subject like that
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
