A quick google search is more than enough for most people to find the code they are looking for, so I do not believe posting your calculator would change anything.

Just post it. People can choose for themselves whether they want to do their homework or not. Directly helping them by talking to them is a different thing than posting some code.

The engineering department at the univesity I attend has an idiotic anti-cheating policy for some of it's classes. So I take great pride in posting the complete solutions to all my work on my web-site.

I post my work for various classes in a number of parts of my web-site. It's my work, I own it, I can do what I want with it.

I had that assignment but in Scheme. It's a binary adder that uses only binary operations. No +/- even for loops and all the logical operations are defined only with true/false statements.

If people can't figure this stuff out on their own, that's their business. It's not your responsibility to keep people from cheating. People "cheat" in the real world all the time. The answer to every question your boss asks is "yes, I can do that." And then you get on Google and figure out how to do it.

So yes, if you want to post it, post it. If people use it to cheat then that's not your problem.

I use the internet all the time to assist me with my homework. Most college textbooks suck so Google does a great job suplementing the book. I find the answers, make sure I understand the answers, and then do well on tests because I have a better understanding of the material. If I find the solution to a problem but don't understand the solution, I don't copy it. There's no point. I never turn in a homework problem that doesn't show all the work or that I don't actually understand.

That's as much cheating as learning how to do the problem from the book (which is often impossible).
