I posted pseudo code….. Get real! We are not here to police the school system….. If a kid trys to trick code from us here then he/she deserves everything they get!
Sorry! I know that sounds hard!
But I need and want to offer help here and not involve myself in policing America’s IT students…. The teachers need to make students aware of the consequences of doing what 99% of programmers do: looking for code on the web! Not we!
Paul, I understand…. But that is not the case in this post! I thought this was simply a newbie! And not a student! Read the post…..
Now what if an answer is demanded? If the scenario was that the student poster demanded we give them an answer, what would you do then? Hopefully you won't give in that easily.
We've fleshed out a few of those posters also, and there are ways to deal with them and give the answers (see above). The extreme would be to obfuscate the code.
But you are missing the point… I am not a professional C++ programmer…. I am a very talented newbie…… Perhaps….. But I cannot police this forum! I can/will help where I can but I am (to tell the truth) here to ask for help…… And, I still don’t understand why posters are policing the forum! Surely if I do something wrong, a moderator (Admin) has the job of telling me that!
Also, maybe because you're a new programmer or not a professional is a reason why you don't see things the same way GCDEF, myself, and others see it. You could say there is a "code of ethics" amongst programmers.
And it isn't just this board:
No… sorry! But old and long does not mean right! I will not argue this with you out of respect for you, but old and tested is religion, terrorism; it has always been that way……. We must be allowed to question and argue or there is no freedom!
And…. I did not post a Homework answer… That is the main point!
dahrull, if you still need help with this I suggest you start a new thread.
I think I'll ask moderators to close this thread.
