Wow. I just finished one heck of a program. I even started it a few days before it was due, and I still was down to the wire. It was due at midnight, and I turned it in promptly at 12:21. Hopefully Prof. Moore will take pity on me.
And now, from the “Compilers say the darnedest things” department: I compile my programs often so I can make sure I’m on the right track. I had compiled the program several times and received normal, easy-to-fix errors, when lo and behold I got this gem:
cPoint.cpp:37: confused by earlier errors, bailing out
Bailing out!? Bastard! What a pansy compiler you are, GCC. I bet a Microsoft compiler wouldn’t have left me out in the cold! (Ha!)
I got the issue resolved. I can’t even remember what it was. It’s just… the audacity.
