If you have any ideas for a code snippet you'd like to see, please post them here. We can't depend on the snippet writers to come up with all of the ideas, can we? ;)

Hmmm, maybe they should, but maybe the posters should practice their analysing of customers problems.

How about reading a page from DaniWeb and finding out if it has mis/unformatted Code block in posts or not?

I haven't get what you trying to say. why is this thread started ?

I really can't simplify it any further.

why is this thread started ?

Because I'm better at writing snippets than coming up with ideas for snippets that people would like to see and learn from. I suspect I'm not alone in that.

No, You can think sir. According to me, You are GOD of C language next to Dennis richtie. He has developed the language and people like you (hats off for you) has made this language really worthful. It's my pleasure that I can say this to you. You can write about dynamic prgramming, backtracking techniques so that people can further improve themselves who want to. (like me).
thanks for everything. :)

Hi Deceptikon,
Below are my opinion. If posting code snippets for below topics wil be useful
1. Some algorithm, its usage, its appolications with real time example right from the basic algorithms. Then it will be useful for beginners like us to go with some specific(standard) algorithms to implement codings.
2. Data strutures - when data structure should use? what type of data structure can be use? where can we use data structure? how to use them? etc,.
3. Memory management related code snippets

Please keep up this good work.

Thanks in advance.

I would like to see something simple like an __asm insertion for example shl 16. I know how to do it in assembly by itself but not with a variable in C.

What do you mean by responses?

By responses, I mean the code snippets. I see questions but no answers. I can't answer any myself yet, sorry.

This thread is for ideas only. The actual code snippets would be created as articles here.

Thanks for such a quick response. I found several useful snippets in there already :-)

I've not contributed any snippets yet. But if you're interested in snippets by an individual, you can navigate to their profile page. Underneath the contributions section you'll find a link to all of the member's code snippets (if they've submitted any).
