Continuing the Massive Project and Retroactively Learning C

In my last post, I described a huge programming assignment that was due on Monday of this week.  Unfortunately, I was unable to completely debug it before then but I am going to office hours this week in an attempt to make it completely debugged.  This coming Monday we are to add to this program yet again, giving it even more functionality.  Essentially, the professor is adding more syntax to the language that she created, and so our parser should be programmed to handle these additions.  Also, we are going to be looking at programming in C for the rest of the semester.  I’m not going to lie, I’m a little bit excited because I have this notion in my head that very experienced programmers know C and how to use it, because it is an incredibly powerful language.  But as the saying goes, “With great power comes great responsibility”, aka debugging is probably going to be very difficult because C allows users more room to make mistakes.
