I was introduced to programming when I was 8 years old. This was a time where "online" meant usenet and the like and few people had modems. It was several years before I actually got online and that was with AOL and Compuserve. It was at least five more years before I had actual internet access. I never went to college. I taught myself programming by devouring EVERY little bit of reference material I could find. I found what little I could at libraries and book stores and a great deal of intuition came into play. When I finally had internet access, it was at a time where nearly every programming concept was closed source and no one dared reveal how they did what they did. You didn't ask, because you knew you wouldn't get an answer. As such, it has only been in the past 8 years or so that I have been able to use the internet as a resource.

 

All that being said, the original poster is IN COLLEGE! A typical college library has more programming reference material on one single SHELF than I had access to in my entire life! It is simply inexcusable to waste such resources. There is no good excuse to come to this board on a deadline and expect any of us to do your work for you because of your inability and/or laziness. If you actually cared, you would have used the massive resources at your disposal to learn how to do what is, in fact, a very simple project.

 

Why is this thread still open?
