I've been working on this project for about two weeks now. Essentially it checks the date, finds events for the day, tells you about them and even lets you plan new ones.
Thinking this would be a great deal easier than it became, I thought I would have gotten further on this project by now.
Call me irrational but I attempted to read the events from a text file using only C-strings (in C++, yes really) and some library functions. I wanted to learn more about C and C++ and how C-strings are/were used.
Which leads me to the question: was it this difficult in the 1960's and 1970's for Computer Scientists to create programs? I've had so much trouble with simply extracting the fields from my text file!
While thinking about the fact that C didn't have much in the way of OOP when it was created (though my knowledge is not that great about C) I cannot help that I, someone who has programmed as a hobby for several years and considers himself very competent cannot get a simple program to operate as desired! Also noted by myself is because they didn't have OOP before C++, so it must have been very difficult to program computers in that time period!
What do you think?C,ccccccc
