Well, now that those midterms are done, I have focussed my efforts on my C programming assignment. An assignment that should be absurdly easy (the instructor gave us all the algorithms we need), but somehow isn't. The problem isn't with pointers this time, but instead it's something with memory, because I keep getting those dreaded segmentation faults. Even though it seems that every other line of code is a "malloc", it still gives me the "Segmentation Fault (Core Dumped)" error. Oh well, I'll figure it out eventually (most likely by inserting "malloc"s in random places, which is what I have been doing so far).
However, on the bright side, I have somewhat figured out the pointers. The operation
"->" comes in REALLY handy sometimes... But it's a good thing I figured them out, because this assignment is full of them. Pointers, and pointers to pointers, pointers to structures, structures of pointers that point to other structures, etc. It's crazy.
In other news, well, there really isn't much other news. The world hasn't ended yet, which is fortunate.
