It is my first post. I am currently workign for a company and have just been moved into R+D. Part of my new job involves C++ Programming.
I am having trouble with numerous things, (was thrown in the deepend)
Basically, This program is designed to keep track of all surfacemounth component activity, jobs, reference numbers, part locations etc...
The thing i am having trouble with is this...
Every PCB has a specific lay file which basically shows all the different components and their quantities taken from the stores location.
This new addition to the program I am working on will enable each tube/reel of parts to be given a new unique reference assignment.
I am having trouble trying to figure out how to read the specific reference number "06/11/07_1" so that the "1" will become an integer and can be incremented everytime there is a new reference number, and also that the program has intelligence as to what was the last reference number given so that it continues from where it left off.
Sorry if my gobble-dee-gook is confusing, but i was trying to put it in the best way i could.
If anyone can help a noob, i would greatly appreciate it.
