    Manual programming question.

    I'm on my third day of manual programming. The instructor has us write in a notepad. I've put a space between every pass to keep them straight in my head. It shouldn't matter, should it? In my thinking, it would just skip over blank lines.

    You certainly could. In computer science, your approach is called The Robust Order of Latent Lines, or TROLL for short.

    Say what??? The uncomprehensiveness is terrific...
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    You are welcome.

    The TROLL approach is a game changer, made possible by the recent discovery of the latent lines. A latent line knows its proper position in a text regardless of where you put it. It is a trivial result of Bohm's hidden variable theory in quantum mechanics, which states that there is a holistic guiding order in the universe.

    That gives immense freedom to programmers, especially to newbies. Just type language elements at random. They know where they need to be to form the program you want to write. But be sure to use an IDE that supports TROLL. I recommend Unvisual C++.
