    Help with a simple program

    OK, I'll be honest with you all, I took a few programming classes and I was wondering if someone had a link to an exe program that makes a big star into a little star and vice versa. I am in the military and was told to somehow get a program that does that, So if anyone can help or know of a place I can get that, it would greatly be appreciated!

    You want to make a big star into a little star?

    Maybe you should contact Darth Vader.

    >>I am in the military

    -why did you have to include that here? that statement about yourself does not pertain to your inquiry at all. Being in the military will not land you any special privilidges.

    As to your post, I doubt that you will find that exact program anywhere on the net. Write it yourself, and if you run into any trouble the members of this board will be sure to help you.

    some entropy with that sink?

    Especially considering the multitude of ways we can interpret "Big star to little star and vice versa".
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    And after you find that program please get the following:

    1. Left-handed monkey wrench.

    2. Cable stretcher for power cord.

    (Then go to the train station and see if the clue train has left yet.)

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.

    OK you nuts, let's help him out!

    You really do need to restate the question. What star? Where is it? What's it's format? How is it to be made smaller?

    If it's a graphic file, just use a program that can scale images.

    Was my previous response too subtle?

    When I see "I am in the military", and "they told me to get (---fill in this space with something silly---)" together, I have an instant flashback to my four years in the Service (USN enlisted, rating AQB2, honorable discharge in 1965). Someone is playing a joke!

    Get it?

    (No, "1965" is not a typo.)

    Whew, and I thought *I* was the oldest one here! We all appreciate your honesty, by the way, Dave.
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
