  1. In Topic: how to avoid rewriting the same code for other levels?

    Posted 25 Dec 2014

    First, you need to learn how to write functions.
    100's of lines of code in main() are doing you no favours.

    const int MAPSIZE = 20;
    void readmap( int level, char map[MAPSIZE ][MAPSIZE ] ) {
      char filename[50];
      sprintf(filename,"maplevel_%02d.txt", level );
      // read from file into map
      // you now have 99 levels to play with, each in
      // a file maplevel_01.txt to maplevel_99.txt
    int main ( ) {
      char map[MAPSIZE ][MAPSIZE ];
      int level = 1;
      bool alive = true;
      while ( alive ) {
        alive = play(map);
        if ( alive ) level++;
      return 0;
  2. In Topic: read serial in c

    Posted 24 Dec 2014

    I guess in the 6 minutes it took you to
    - get the notification
    - read the link - however briefly
    - bounce back with another "feed me" post

    you missed section 1.4 of the howto.

    Merry xmas.
  3. In Topic: Taylor expansion

    Posted 24 Dec 2014

    Another day, and more "found" code ->

    It doesn't even compile.
    gcc -std=c99 main.c                                   
    main.c:4:5: warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'sin' 
    [enabled by default]                                               
     int sin (double x)                                                
    main.c: In function 'sin':                                         
    main.c:8:8: error: invalid operands to binary % (have 'double' and 
      fi=y=x% (2*pi);                                                  
    main.c:9:9: error: 'oldsum' undeclared (first use in this function)
      sum=y; oldsum=0;                                                 
    main.c:9:9: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once 
    for each function it appears in                                    

    Listen kid, if you want to learn how to program, you need to do more than just google for source code, then dump it on a forum for others to explain to you.

    You might think you understand it at the end of the thread, but you won't.
