Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the solution, part of Code Clinic: C++.
- Hi, this is Bill Weinman.…For this challenge, I created a solution…very different from most of my other solutions,…and I'd like to start by explaining my train of thought.…So far in this series, my solutions have all…been command-line programs written in C++.…I do that because I want to focus on the coding challenge,…and not on any particular operating system…or graphical interface.…For example, with last month's eight queens problem,…I wrote a command-line program that printed the results…in text form rather than creating an image.…This allowed me to spend more time showing you…how the problem was solved, rather than how…to create a display in one particular operating system.…
This challenge is different, though.…It's actually very OS specific.…This challenge is about accessing audio hardware,…and mouse movement, and these things are very different…in different operating systems…and sometimes even different hardware environments.…So first I had to decide, what OS am I going to use?…I did briefly consider doing it in Linux.…
Bill introduces challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in C++. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
Visit other courses in the series to see how to solve the exact same challenges in languages like C#, Java, PHP, Python, and Ruby.
