    Posting Homework Problems

    Many people like to post their programming homework assignments on this forum.

    Here is how to solve any homework assignment on your own:

    • First, read the problem and figure out what the task is
    • Think about the problem and use your intelligence to figure it out in a way that best suits you.
    • If you don't understand it, ask your instructor, consult your notes, or (I know this hurts) look it up independently.
    • If that fails to solve the problem, you need to reevaluate the instructor and yourself.

    Computer programming is all about problem solving and being able to use your mind. If you can't do that...

    Posting such questions is against forum policy, see:

    What is allowed:

    Just because posting homework assignments is against forum policy, you can ask questions that are related to homework. If you get stuck on certain aspects of the assignment (like compiling your code in Linux, or something not specific to the solution to the problem.) you can ask.

    Also note:

    We can all tell homework when it is homework, so don't think you can fool us. If you can't figure out how to solve the problem, don't think you can fool people who can.
