This is probably so simple it's not funny, but you never know.

int varible = 0;

int main(void)
{
hello fellow programmer
}
Make the code in the main function add one to the varible varible, without adding anything to main or using classes or structs.

Yes, yes it is. It's also pretty pointless seeing as how you won't learn anything significant from solving the puzzle.

Lighten up, we are in the General Discussions board, not everything you learn here has to be significant. And if it's so easy, then why not solve this "pointless puzzle"?

I was simply stating an observation. There's no need to get defensive. :)

For the same reason that I don't participate in contests that I'm overqualified for. If I throw together a solution in a few seconds then it sucks the fun right out of the exercise for the people who are actually interested in figuring it out.

There is very little interesting about this exercise actually. I prefer puzzles that actually can be used in real-life situations (and are more challenging that just mimic language features). This one is pointless.

But still...

#define hello varible
#define fellow +=
#define programmer 1;

Oh.

It's just that where I come from (my family), no one makes an observation, it's always an aggresive comment, so I am automaticly always in defense mode. :(

I guess it is.

Oh well, maybe my other thread isn't...

I think I'll copy your poll idea in relation to my signature.

Well, it's always good to know I'm not alone. :)

Hmm, my family is just super competitive about everything. Holidays together are always entertaining.

I'm the only man in my house. Even the damn cat is a she. My wife and daughter... well, in short, Electra never had a saying.

... so I take it on the forums

I can relate to Mario's feelings. I'm the only male in this generation of my family. I'm lonely.

I had to read that again after first seeing "My family challenges your family to a game of Family Freud!".

Eek.
