I've been working on my Validate program all morning. For those of you not in Ron's C++ class, this is a tasty chunk of reusable code that makes sure that the user enters a valid integer. It can be modified to suit your needs.
I think I just came up with an application of it to keep people from writing in 133tspeak, too.
But when I'm working on this, and I keep discovering that yes, I can damn well do this, and as I get each piece of code working, I keep jumping up and down with general enthusiasm and running to Adam to tell him the good news.
Hopefully I will settle down a bit about routine coding successes before going into the workplace, or I'll be a bit odd to work with.
