Hello. Please reopen the thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...8#post12601398 it is not homework. I would understand if I had posted fifteen problems like this to be solved. The idea is someone helps me solve one, I attempt to solve all the others. Why is this forum so paranoid about people cheating on homework assignments? I'm being treated like a criminal on this forum for asking simple questions. None of the problems/questions I have posted on this forum have been homework problems. For the sake of argument, let's say this is a homework problem. Let us say that it is a homework problem which for marks will be given. Does anyone on this forum seriously believe that by showing me how to solve this problem I will be rewarded with so many marks that I will unfairly pass the course and eventually become an unqualified programmer? It doesn't matter what I post it is always labelled as homework. If I wrote adding two integers in C++ you guys would waste time reporting me instead of just helping me. Absolutely all questions/problems on this forum might be homework problems. Why am I being singled out?
