I have finally finished my first big project as a program. It's a program that does some of the more advanced pre-algebra stuff. Yes, I just finished pre-algebra this year so don't make fun of me. You can download it at: http://www.crosswinds.net/~gaurdianangel/Free.html And since nobody has told me they have visited my site here's the home page URL: http://www.crosswinds.net/~gaurdianangel Remember, this may look like a little simple program to you gurus out there but this is my first big project and my first program that does something useful, so give me some tips or encouragement please. ............

I didnt check your stuff, but, for the third time :
Please fix your signature!
Every post you make makes the whole thread get bugged (to me, or Netscape users, at least). It seems theres a " missing in the end of your link. Check that please!

Thanks a lot,

Hey, i downloaded your thing. A few comments. Obviously your a beginner so i won''t get on you for the "character based" interface. It shows you know a fair amount of whatever language you used. Not very intuitive or user friendly but thats what you get with character based applications. The file is HUGE for that kind of n application!!! Try release mode before you make us d/l that. The prog would be pretty good if it was only a visual program instead of a character prog. I don''t know if there were any bugs or not but i got a bad output the first time i tried something(perhaps i enetered bad input)??

Well, I programmed it in C and character interface is all I know so far, sorry. What do you mean by release mode and d/I? I don''t know how to program a visual program but when I do, trust me, I will. There is one bug that was discussed in the read-me (if you read it, don''t blame you if you didn''t), sometimes there''s a letter on the line where you''re supposed to enter a value, you have to back space it or the program will glitch. Thanks for downloading it at least.

Sorry, this is my first program that I made without any help from a book or anything. This is a big accomplishment for a 13 year old you know.

not to brag or to put you down or anything, but I made pong and space invaders when I was 13. (I started programming when I was 13). This was all in mode13h with DJGPP. This isn''t to put you down, but just to tell you that age doesn''t matter that much.

Yeah I know, and I hope to reach that point at some time. But, I won''t be able while I''m getting eaten up by flames here.

90% of all people here started programming at the age of 13, or below. It seems 9 - 13 are the most common.

I seriously doubt that, I''d say more like 20% started programming at 13 or below. I started programming at 17, and I know that there are quite a few people that post here that didn''t start programming until their late teens or even into their twenties.

Thank you Kazan, that makes me feel well, good. I too agree that your figures might be a little off, okay off alot. Might want to double check that one.

Your program has potential... Maybe make it so that the different options are listed vertically instead of in one big line. It would make it a lot easier to use.

A problem... I tried to find the area of a circle with radius 32 and it gave me the answer as 0.

D/L means download.
I don''t know how this works on a Borland compiler, but in MSVC you select "Set Active Configuration" from the Build menu to change from "debug" to "release" mode. Programs compiled with release options can be half the size (or maybe less?) of the program compiled with debug options.
Hope that helps.

Okay deakin, did you backspace the letter that was sitting on the line where you type your answer? That could be the problem. If that doesn''t work, I''m going to have to test my source code.

Shilbert, I''ll try that. Sounds like it''s pretty easy to do. But, don''t be alarmed if I email you asking for a step by step walk through.

Thanks again everyone!

Downloaded it.
Good stuff! Its always a hard slog to get your first
project together. I guess a little tweaking is called for
(as described above), but thats the way with software isn''t it. At least it pretty much does what its supposed to without needing me to download a patch unlike half the stuff i pay 30quid a shot for (haha)

Hint: If its for the area of a square you only need the measurment for one side ;-)

I would say do the revisions to it etc. if only for your own piece of mind (and to address your critics) before you move onto another project.
Best regards,
