    hehe, thanks a lot :flattered:

    I really couldn't have gotten it anywhere near as good without all of the help from you guys though.

    i didn't mean to seem narky, i was just trying to get a point
    across, someone as enthusiastic as yourself has great potential,
    so i was just trying to steer you well clear of possible problems
    with warnings in the future.

    i think we can all echo that! well done, oh and thanks for the
    credit as well!
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();

    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference

    My Gear:
    OS - Windows XP
    IDE - MS Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition

    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI

    Bad compiler, then. The automatic return is part of the C++ standard and must not result in any diagnostic messages on a conforming compiler.
    All the buzzt!

    I called it 'Get To Know Your Computer'.

    You can download the .exe here and the source here.

    As you might have guessed, it's Windows only. Sorry about that guys, Linux may be better, but I need my adobe/macromedia suites/3dmax/computer games/everything else
    Very neat little program! Pretty nice concept I must say! Though I am sad that my computer's name is DESKTOP-1. Sort of depressing eh?
    Oh my goodness.
