Ideas for final project?

P: n/a
Hello folks,

I'm on the lookout for project ideas for a C++ class. The project should:

-Be a "fairly complex" application

-Contain elements such as inheritance, STL, and dynamic memory allocation

-Be reasonable to complete in 1 month :)

I came across a few interesting ones:

-Simple Word game

-Encryption scheme

-Interactive Quiz/Test

I'm relatively new, so I'm wondering how complex these might be to
implement?

Also, other ideas are welcome.

Thanks in advance!

CK

None of them is difficult; however, it depends. I'll choose the second one
if I were you.

-Interactive Quiz/Test For this third item, I'm not sure what you mean.
Yes if it is something like implementing a state machine
(e.g. "Here's the spec of an elevator/coffee machine,
now implement it's behavior using the following
calls for controlling the hardware, and getting
user events (button presses) from this callback" ).
I'm relatively new, so I'm wondering how complex these might be to
implement? Any kind of topic can be turned into a more or less complex problem.

Try looking within the following for ideas:
http://acm.uva.es/problemset/ (home)
or: http://acm.uva.es/cgi-bin/OnlineJudge?Volume:1 (e.g.)

Of course, you probably want to pick a problem that does not
require too much domain-specific knowledge, and in which
proper use of OOD or the STL will help.
Also, other ideas are welcome.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Ivan
