You used a wrong programming language. The requirement was: C. Stop excusing yourself. :)

cout??? That is C++, not C. This piece of code is wrong and worthless. :wink:

Well I reckon both C and C++ are for wimps, having cut my teeth on 6800 (no, there are no missing zeros :wink: ) and Z80 assembly language programming. :P

Blast from the past! I seem to recall typing DOS line-code into my Z80.

Oh and producing ASCII-art via machine readable paper tape! We'd spend hours in school 'Computer club' producing those...

i have worked with embedded systems believe me, but I've used Micro-controller assembly code not C or C++
man this is years ago in engineering school.

I have not, but isn't it very architecture specific? Putting substantial effort in place you would probably like to have something portable.

You misunderstand the power of C.

It is architecture specific yes and thats one of the drawbacks of microcontroller code.
For Intel its different, for ARM its different for Motorola the memory addressing used to be the exact opposite of Intel. I used a fair amount of assembly code back in the day to build an antenna that could pick up signals from polar orbiting satellites, build small receivers that could decipher RC5 code from remote controls and so on.

how exactly did I misunderstand the power of C ? by using cout instead of printf ? :P

programmers heaven was one of the sites I used to visit for all my school and college projects on C and C++
I don't know if it still offers all latest and greatest anymore, I used to find a ton of useful info on there.

The irony is Java and C# did not replace C++ completely as predicted, and both of them may die off in the future. With such a trend soon industry will get back from C++ to C to get competitive advantage (for high frequency trading, for example, every nanosecond counts). I will not be surprised is within the next decade I will have to recall Assembler. :)
