    Pathfinding Robot

    Hey there codingForums!

    I have been given a piece of coursework and before I go wandering off on my own and messing things up I figured I should best start with a forum of experts.

    • The requirements for the program are to have a "Robot" that moves from one location to another read in from a file, on a 20x20 grid.

    • It can only move forward and turn to look in the directions of NORTH, EAST, SOUTH, WEST.

    • There are also landmarks stored in another file, record the ones I pass over

    • Then print out how far the robot moved.

    Upgrades (Not necessary for a pass)
    • Graphics using swing.

    • Being able to rotate in any direction of 360 degrees.

    • Still print out how far the robot moved but now it's not as simple as I'd need to use trig. now.

    I am a big newbie to programming as a whole, only the basic things I have done through uni I know and I would like any input you guys could give me on how best to start this bad boy of an assignment.

    Kind regards,

    Please see forum rule 1.5. We will not do your homework/assignment for you, but if you make as substantial effort yourself then I am sure that people will help you correct/improve it.

    All advice is supplied packaged by intellectual weight, and not by volume. Contents may settle slightly in transit.

    That means this is a JAVA question.

    So you aren't even posting in the right forum.

    This is the JavaSCRIPT forum.

    About the only major thing Java and JavaScript have in common is the first 4 letters of their names.
    Be yourself. No one else is as qualified.
