Options

Okay, so I've accumulated some points on a website and I want to redeem them for a reward. I've narrowed my choice down to 2 (of not very many). Here they are: 1. TI-Nspire 2. $150 Gift Card to Barnes & Noble I don't know which I want. Any suggestions? I've heard so many things about the program...

[ASM] 68000

Merry Christmas everyone!!! So, I haven't looked at very much ASM programming, would this be too difficult to accomplish? 1) Write a 68000 partial program to calculate the polynomial P(x)=2x^3-x^2=4. 2) Write a 68000 assembly program to count the odd numbers found in a numbered list located in memor...

[C] GUIs

I'm going to be learning C (finally) next semester, so I started looking in an old book I had on my shelf about C. I couldn't find anything in it about GUI programming, and I can't seem to find any GUI examples on the web either.

Is it practical to create GUI programs in C?

[General] Backtracking

If anyone remembers my old post about permuting all the possibilities of a data set using factoradic numbers, I am now trying to permute in a different manner - via backtracking. Does anyone know how backtracking works? I can't seem to find any good explanations on the web (Wikipedia's definition is...

Oh no, no, no, no! I am most certainly not finished! I'm getting that clone as close as possible to the real thing if it's the last thing I do! :D

NXT Robotics

So, I recently joined the Boise State Robotics Club and am now the Treasurer (the club just started). We are going to build NXT robots! If you are not familiar with these, you can easily look it up in YouTube and tons of awesome videos will come up. After doing a little fishing, I found a video of a...

Re: [Java] Minesweeper Concepts

Oh yeah, if anyone would like to test out my Minesweeper program, you can get it here . And, yes, it is compiled in a jar file, especially for Ben ;). 102-nil to me. :excited: (or beginner's luck?) The game plays well. :) Packaging it up as a .jar may make it easier to run (on Windows at least you c...

Re: [Java] Minesweeper Concepts

I have a few questions. What do the isEmpty() and isWrapper() methods of the MButton class do? I would guess that isWrapper() returns whether the button is adjacent to a mine, but I can't think what isEmpty() does. It is best, for a minesweeper game (in my opinion) to create a N+2 by M+2 array wher...

Re: [Java] Minesweeper Concepts

Ah! I can't believe how difficult I was making that! Ben, you were totally right! You can replace this with a queue instead by modifying the algorithm slightly. My eyes popped open super early yesterday morning and knew exactly what to do (of course I didn't have the time to do it yesterday). Here i...
