I'm working on a school C++ program, and its my first that uses classes and objects. Its great fun, and I'm almost done. I have a problem with the search function, which involves several pieces of code- the .h files, the .cpp implementation file, and the main code file. If I need help on this, how much code do I send? Do you experts need the entire program or just clips of what I think is the relevant code?
Is there anyone here who is willing to on-line tutor? Sometimes a few minutes of explanation while actually sharing control of Visual Studio would be a big help. Maybe DaniWeb should consider a forum that facilitates this- a shared work environment where students could get one-on-one help with stuff.
To me, the most easily answerable posts contain the shortest possible amount of code that is complete (meaning I don't have to add anything to get it to compile and run), and still demonstrates the issue/concept you're asking about.
In my experience, just going through the process of isolating my problem to a minimal amount of code often makes it pretty clear what the problem really is.
