    Question Tracking Algoritham

    Any body know of any good Tracking Algorithams? I don't mean like: "if(missle_x > player_x) missle_x--; else missle_x++;". I mean more like the seeker missles in the game MicroMan. (Smooth and more realitic.) I have made many of my own but nothing as good as in MicroMan, and It seem that the same one used in MicroMan is used in many other games too. So if you have any good Tracking Algorithams, please let me know.

    Is it tile based? I would say the A* algorithm works well.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Google seems to ignore the '*', and the cboard seach won't respond, so, where would I be able to find the A* algorithm?

    >> Is it tile based?
    Not sure I get it.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
