    I hope some of you who wrote these insulting messages read this one day

    First of all its not home work, why do you people always think its home work? I am trying to teach myself Its hard you know second why would you think I wont be a real programmer some day. thirdly if I was good enough, I would do peoples home work on here for them and not get anoyed,
    I will check back here from time to time.
    Also I know how to use IF statements, its just the text book I am reading to learn C++ asked me not to use If statments, otherwise I could of done it.
    Thanks.

    Its sad how programmers, can me mean.

    Because these are the same questions that get asked and it IS homeword 80% of the time. We're not psychic and since mostly student's post questions, it's a natural assumption

    Because someone wanted to be a jerk and tell you that. The best programmers started at the bottom 2 and whoever said that to you was either frustrated or mean-spirited

    The you would deserve the grade instead of them. We don't do people's homework, we try to help them understand so they can do their own homework, and learn how to figure it out for the next program. If you do it for them, they learn nothing and you've stroked your ego.

    This is true, but we are human. I'll bet non-programmers can be mean too.

    Code:
    #include<iostream.h>
    main()
    {
    	highest=( (a>b) ? ((a>c) ? a : c) : ((b>c) ? b : c) );
    }
    im amazed that compiled. never seen syntax like that before. how does it work?

    >highest=( (a>b) ? ((a>c) ? a : c) : ((b>c) ? b : c) );
    This is just awful. You should avoid nested conditional operators.

    >how does it work?
    Like this:
    Code:
    if ( a > b ) {
      if ( a > c )
        highest = a;
      else
        highest = c;
    }
    else {
      if ( b > c )
        highest = b;
      else
        highest = c;
    }
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Hey Just wanted to apologise, for how I wrote it. I was having a bad day yesterday. To be honest I never read the code they used anyway as I do belive on here you got to learn from yourself. I already had code, but It's not very good and the last thing I want is anyone wanting to see my attempt at programming until I am good and ready.
    "Been here done that", Thanks you madea lot of sense.
    Chris

    this thread turned pretty sour... what's the big deal with giving the person by example... the way I see it, this time they'll learn by example, so next time they'll be better prepared to do it on their own... then again that only fits in with my way of thinking... somebody who wants the knowledge will look over and try to undestand the code and then try it on their own...

    usually I just give some base code for the person to modify to their needs... but that's mostly because I'm too lazy to tailor the code too precisely...
