    >How do u control time in c++

    Example:
    Code:
    #include <timetravel.h>
    
    int main(void) {
      if((TimeMachine *tm = new TimeMachine("December 16, 2004"))) {
        tm->setYear(1942);
        delete tm;
      }
    
       return 0;
    }
    My sample code will take you back in time to World War II when compiled and executed. Compile and run this to get back:

    Example:
    Code:
    #include <timetravel.h>
    
    int main(void) {
      if((TimeMachine *tm = new TimeMachine("December 16, 1942"))) {
        tm->setYear(2004);
        delete tm;
      }
    
       return 0;
    }

    you'll need to include <fluxcapacitor.h> to control time
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
    I dont have a menu for it or anything.

    Fun is fun, but since we have both got crap in the past for someone taking us too seriously:

    DISCLAIMER: You cannot travel through time by including timetravel.h nor fluxcapcitor.h into your project. Cprogramming.com does not take responsibility for people lost in the space/time continueum from botched attempts at time travel using the C++ programming language.

    >>delete tm;
    I'd just like to point out, this is an especially important line. You don't want to be losing your memory when you're faaaaar away from home.

    But if you do lose your memory and you can't handle life anymore, just run this:
    Code:
    delete this;
    Just Google It. √

    }
    Actually in this example once back in 1942 you don't need to worry about deleting the memory since its already freed and possibly non-existent.

    Of course you are all assuming that you'll find a computer in 1942 capable of running that program.

    I'm not, in my test program I reconfigured my cross compiler to compile the secondary program to punch card format. So I'll make it back just fine

    Good luck finding anything that resembles a computer in 1942, even one that reads punch cards. If I recall correctly the first computers where in 1943 and 1944 depending on the country (Germany, UK, USA) and 2 were definitely under constant surveillance by military personell (not quite sure about the z3 so your best bet would be to travel back around Berlin)

    Yeah, and also remember that the first computer used a vacuum cleaner motor for setting the CPU frequency...

    Then I guess i better do this:

    Example:
    Code:
    tm->setPersonalItem("computer");

    Good idea. Don't forget that this overrides the default choice ("clothes"). TimeMachine can only handle one personal item.

    lmao! Well like any programmer I'm not afraid to toy with the rules to get what I want.

    Example:
    Code:
    tm->setPersonalItem("computer,clothes,book on WWII German war strategies");

    Yeah, well, just beware, because most implementations I know have undefined behaviour on that. And undefined behaviour is something you don't want while time-travelling
