    Post Check out my code

    On Programmers' Day, I felt the need to write some code. I've been learning bits and pieces of HTML recently, and I came across a nice way to write HTML tables to make calendars. I thought that was cool, but it was tedious to write the HTML code for them by hand. So, I wrote a program that can write the HTML code for a calendar.

    I'm posting my code for two reasons. First, because I want to show it off to someone who can understand and appreciate it Second, so that I can get some feedback and criticism. Please let me know what you think.

    First your question of Enter the first day of the month, is not clear to the user. It also put september as starting on thursday(5) when I specified monday(1). Otherwise it is okay. Also with <cstring> I got 13 errors. I changed it to <string> and all was okay.

    Well, I guess I could put something in like (ex. Wednesday), but I fail to see where confusion could arise.

    It also put september as starting on thursday(5) when I specified monday(1).
    Did you try to enter a number when prompted for the first day of the month? I tested my program for every month in 2003, and I just tested it again for September. When prompted for the first day of the month, the user is supposed to enter a string like "Monday".

    Otherwise it is okay. Also with <cstring> I got 13 errors. I changed it to <string> and all was okay.
    Ahh, you're right about that one. It compiles just fine wo/that 'c'.

    Actually I used your source code to determine what values to type. And for the start of the month your program seemed to want an int not a string. I guess I miss read your source code.

    Yeah, you did. Understandable, though. I read in a string like "Monday" and then convert it to an int, in this case 1. Sorry for the confusion.

    Anything else?

    why not write it in PHP or Javascript? that way it can be run on the web...

    The simple answer to that is because I don't know those languages. I'm moving into Drexel University tomorrow. I've got 18 credits first term. I don't forsee learning any new languages in the near feature unless they're required for my intro to comp sci course.

    Then again, I imagine it wouldn't be too tough to just convert a single program. I dunno. Not tonight, though. I've gotta finish packing for the big move tomorrow. Yay for college!

    hey congrats...college will be a lot of fun for you man! I know I'm having a blast....hehe...yea....wooohoooo.... huraahh....
    beer...coffee....cigarettes....coffee....beer...as pirin ....loud music ....yeah!


    but anyways...18 credit hours is a good start...it will keep ya busy the first semester! the most I ever took is 21...! that was a good ride.... anyhow, speaking of other languages, you probably will learn a language such as HTML or javascript. In my first cs class we did html, jscript, and shell scripts.

    anyways, have fun, and don't give up....best advice: don't procrastinate....manage your time wisely.

    learning PHP shouldn't be hard... from what I've heard it's extremely close to C/C++...
