    Need Practice exercises

    Hey guys I just completed by first c++ class. I want to practice so I dont forget. I am kinda clueless on what to code, I haven't learned classes and objects yet but I plan to do it on my own this summer so I can be prepared for the next class. But if you guys can suggest some assignments I could do for practice that would be awesome. Plz make them as easy or as hard as you like.

    THe front page of this site has some challanges but some other
    challanges, you could write a

    Black Jack Game ( Or another Card Game )
    A Encryption/Decryption Program (Alot of people start out with this one)
    Or you could simply write a program that would make some task
    in your life simpler.
    A Memo keeper that can display information on the dates you need when you run it.

    Im kinda in a stump to cause ive programmed a crap load of
    useless program for the purpose of simply keeping my skills
    up. occassionally i think of something fun to try. So im kinda
    interested in the responses also.

    Just make up some sort of simple game and program it... That's what I do.

    Well my often posted link is http://acm.uva.es/problemset/
    Or more generally http://www.google.com/search?q=programming+contests

    Another thing to do is just read the board looking for various homework questions and try and solve the ones which interest you.

    Or maybe pick some open source development which interests you, and get to know it's code base. Start with minor bug fixes and work your way up from there.

    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.

    Summer projects:

    1) Write a program that creates an econometric model to solve world hunger. Alternatively, write a program that deciphers all the U.N coverups Kofi Anan has been involved in, and the probablilty and duration of any impending jail term.

    2) Write a program that hacks into every major country's military network. If they have nukes, disable them permanently, otherwise scramble their jets to go search for an imaginary threat in their airspace.

    ...do you want...to play a gammme?
