    Question Help a struggling C++ student!

    Hi,
    I came here hoping that perhaps some of the members here could help me out. I have five programming assignments that I have been given, and I need help completing them. If anyone could write the code needed to complete the assignments I would be very grateful. They are linked below:

    Challenge One: ]Tiny URL - create a shorter link
    Challenge Two: Eight Queens - Google Docs
    Challenge Three: Padlocks of Lore - Google Docs
    Challenge Four: Going the Distance - Google Docs
    Challenge Five: ]Tiny URL - create a shorter link

    Please complete any one of the five if you can. They are not too hard, but I simply have no C++ skill whatsoever! I only took this course because my father wants me to become a programmer like him and made me take it at school. I myself have no interest in the subject, but I must pass this course to save my GPA.
    Thank you,
    Richard.

    EDIT: Thank you for the feedback. I understand that many of you will not do this favor for me, and I accept that. However, I do know that there are people who are willing to help. Do not assume that I have not tried to complete these tasks. In fact, I have, and the only reason why I am turning to such a method is because I cannot. Once again, thank you for your comments.

    What will you achieve by someone else doing the work for you?

    Part of the reward of learning and education is figuring things out for yourself. Most of all though, it is the satisfaction of achieving something after putting in the hard work, research and long hours.

    Its a cliche yes, but it is true that you are only cheating yourself by someone doing the work for you.

    Lol, the same thing all the great leaders in the USA learn. How to con others into doing their job for them. I suspect you are on the right track to being successful lol.

    Maybe you can start with the program / coding and then if it does not work post what you have and people will take a look....

    I think i can speak for all that you need to do your work and we can help check it and or say what you have done wrong....

    Why not look for a more appropriate place to ask for help? Such as a forum specifically related to coding and C++. There are many people here that have the knowledge you seek but I think you would find more help in a more specialized place. At least this is what I have learned from being a part of different forums.

    Also outright asking someone to do it FOR you won't get you very much help. I would start by reading up on c++ ( lots of info out there) and then ask for help on specific things that you are stuck on or don't understand fully.

    Just my opinion, good luck!
    Damn I suck!!!!

    If your Dad is a programmer why would you not ask him?

    I hope no-one does; because if it ever came to the time that someone relied on you to write the code as part of your future job and you did a poor hash of it then who knows what the consequences should be. If it's really came to this, perhaps you should change your course or re-think your career choices for life.

    Thanks for these though, I think I'll complete them for myself to learn C++, I wanted some examples.

    They are not too hard, but I simply have no C++ skill whatsoever! I only took this course because my father wants me to become a programmer like him and made me take it at school. I myself have no interest in the subject, but I must pass this course to save my GPA.
    Why don't you speak to the lecturers/teachers about it? At least to learn enough to be able to complete it. When I started at university I didn't realise that the computing courses would be full of programming; but several years down the line I appreciate it more even though I had to 'force' myself to do it.

    In the UK a lot of modules are compulsory on HND or Degree courses and we can't choose to change them.

    Also while you say you've attempted to produce the solutions yourself; I wonder how much assistance you've requested about it? For some people it's just understanding translating what they want to do (in pseudo code) to the functions and layout, others it's more they don't understand how the programming language works.

    Amazon.com: The C++ Programming Language: Special Edition (0785342700732): Bjarne Stroustrup: Books

    Above is a good 'reference' book and goes into detail and guides through programming in C++ from the creators. If you can't buy it, get it out from a library?

    Failing that, ask on IRC on the freenode network, I'm sure they'd love to hear from you; but if there's a specific problem you're having with programming.. then try to ask questions the smart way:

    How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    Read that, and it'll help you no end.

    Then again, tl;dr.
    If you're looking for a quick fix, you'll learn nothing and in future may be relying on experience you haven't gained. Also, stand up to your Dad in future if it's something you don't want to do.

    Good luck.

    Closing Thread. The WiiHacks community has never been and continues to look down on cheaters. If successful in cheating his way through this assignment, Richard may help his GPA but at the cost of being forced down a career path he does not want. All of us have or will have a time at which we either remain under our parents control or become an independent adult. Richard may not yet be ready right now; best wishes.
