    I have been finding hard times to study programming. During classes, we are just given problems right away then on the spot lecturing without even explaining in detailed the flows and conditions of procedures. To dear experts, can you give me some guidelines to effectively study programming? I usually only end up with nothing analyzing problems and understanding codes whose principles are not taught. Is it possible to understand programming with just experimentation? Thanks. Your helpful answer will be much appreciated.

    I am wanting to learn C++ as I was told it will help me in my future programming. Could you possibly email that book to me too?

    Thank you Spoon, some people were telling me floats are bad with currency and well I have to create a currency program in C for my programming class and the teacher is promoting floats.

    Floats aren't bad for currency per se but you have to be aware of the limitations of converting between decimal and binary. For example 1.76 cannot be specified as an exact binary number, just as 1/3 cannot be expressed as an exact decimal number; in both cases, if you have a limited number of digits to play with you will get errors. So 1/3 to 4dp is 0.3333, but 0.3333 != 1/3. Similarly 1.76 to 8bp=1.11000010, but actually 1.76=1.(11000010100011110101) - using brackets to denote recurring digits, so in the same way you could express 1/3 exactly as 0.(3), or 1/7 as 0.(142857). 0.3333!=1/3; it's off by exactly 0.0000(3).

    There was a film some years ago based around someone in a bank filtering off all the fractional results into their own account. Nobody would notice if their account was changed from $1234.120573857264 to $1234.12, but all those $0.000573857264's added up. The daft twit made the mistake of turning up to work the next day in an expensive sports car...
