    Lab/Project Ideas?

    I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but I searched and I came up with lots of irrevelant results. I'm getting ahead in C++ and would like to have some kind of assignment or project, like those that are usually done in college of an C++ intro course. If you have any ideas or any links to some, that would be great. I searched on google, but most of the sites are very specific to the course, etc. Thanks. BTW, I now know pointers, inheritence, and arrays.

    PS: If this is the wrong forum, please move.

    API's are useful, but you might want to look into something more universally applicable like algorithms.

    I don't have any specific links, but implementing something simple like a Selection Sort can help you soldifiy your knowledge of arrays and pointers, and can lead to other fields like generic programming.

    You could try some of these
    http://online-judge.uva.es/problemset/
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Thanks for the replies. The problemset link is pretty nice, although most of them are beyond my current skill level.

    If you work at them, that won't be the truth anymore, now will it?
