    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    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.

    something like this... in flowchart format
    While (content of box 9) <100


    Add 2 to content of box 1 and put it in box 2 for the first iteration
    Add 3 to content of box 1 and put it in box 2 for the second iteration
    Add 4 to content of box 1 and put it in box 2 for the third iteration
    Add ..


    Multiply content of box whose number is in box 2 by 2 and put it in box 6


    Divide content of box 6 by 10 and put it in box 7


    Add content of box 6 and 7 and place it in the box whose number is in box 7


    Add content of box 9 with box number whose content is 7



    Multiply all boxes with odd numbers by two, divide all boxes with even numbers by two, place the result in the same box and write the result as a string with the contents of all boxes (1-9) with a space in between the contents of every box in the result string
