Introduction

I'm Jake, I'm in Unix/Linux System administration. I live and work in Corning. I don't have much experience with C, so this class should be exciting.

cprog week10


April 1st 2020

Going to be submitting my afn0 late and it's my own fault for waiting to really work on it until the last minute. Currently I have it 99% done, minus the segmentation fault that is coming from a malloc() call that is returning null, or at least thats what I think I just figured out, not entirely sure. On the bright side I started using lldb on my Mac (gdb? on other machines) to try to debug the runtime errors and I must admit it really is helping. I might try to push through and get this in tonight but it just isn't likely. This is the last week I'll be procrastinating these projects.

March 4, 2020

Finished the cos0 project today, spent a lot of time wondering why it wouldn't compile, then used the makefile and it did. I'm going to read more into that because it was really getting under my skin not being able to do it manually. Either way it worked and I submitted it. Also need to work on my hg branching because I really couldn't get the cos0 branch closed without it messing up other stuff. Someway I will figure out a way that works for me.

Starting to get a better grasp on writing in C, I'm committing less on bug fixes, and small compiler errors because I got the compiler to work on my Mac (literally one button to install 'xtools command line something something') so im not committing, pushing, pulling, and updating to see that I forgot a semicolon. Also found out that my dow0 would have been very susceptible to y2k, but I fixed that bug.

The two flags I choose for the fwf0 project were at first Palestine and Greece. After Finishing the Palestine flag and starting the Greek flag, I realized that it would not meet the requirements for an intermediate flag, and as such, I decided to abandon it. I then choose to do the North Korean flag and will argue that it is an Advanced flag, and here is why. 1. 3 Colors - Red, White, and Blue 2. 3 Shapes - Rectangle, Circle, and Star 3. Creation Utilizes Loops - The star uses loops to create the points, and because of the variables can have oo (not truly) points if desired.

Anyhow, I mostly wanted to do that one because I wanted to make a star with a loop, but didn't want to also have another loop to make fifty and was tired of making stripes.

The loop I made started as 3 loops because for some reason it didn't click at first that I could have a second variable that rises with the loop. All in all, it worked by taking the full circle the star was going to be inside (so that the circle and star matched on the flag) and dividing it by the number of points on the star. It had two radiuses, one for the points on the outside and one for points on the inside. My issue at first was having points added to the array correctly, as each loop actually calculated two vertices (one for outside radius point and the other for the inside radius point) and I couldn't assign two values to the same spot in the array. Eventually, I came up with a solution and it works fairly well, but I think it will only work with a 5 pointed star unless some other changes are made. I might make my own little area to mess around with it because I doubt it will be hard, but there are other classes to do work for.

Hello World! This is my week one journal entry. Not much has happened this week so far, day 2 now. My hello world program compiled without error, so that means I didn't mistype anything, so that's nice. All in all not much so far, but definitely more to come.
