i know C++ enough to write pretty simple stuff. ive writen some little stuff like a console calculator but i want a challenge. i know the way to learn more of a language is to make programs with it but i dont know what to make. i get ideas but they always sound too hard or too easy. and id like someone to tell to make a program. because if i keep trying to tell myself its never gonna be done. tell me exactly what it should do and il attempt to make the program. after that il give out the program and source code and you can find any bugs or messups that ive made and tell me how to make it better. if youd be interested in just describing a program to help me just go at it.

Make a numerology calculator. :) I had to write a simplified one in my C++ course. The simple one wasn't very interesting but a fully featured one might.

Input to the program would be the person's first and last name.

Using a specific algorithm the program generates a special numerology number that has a meaning.

The algorithm basically works like so.....each letter of the alphabet is assigned a number such as:


Each letter of the person's name is then added up using the numbers assigned to the letters. Using that sum each digit of that sum is then added up, and then from that sum each digit is added up, and so on until only one digit remains. That would be the special number.

Then that special number has a predefined meaning.

The exact process and algorithm and meanings of the numbers can be found in a web search for numerology calculator.

im a bit confused. is this the number thing that desrcibes ur what kinda person you are? i heard about htis somewhere (ok, ok ... the x-files). but i dont know what all of the numbers mean. i get the main gist of what your saying but i dont know what to put for each of the descriptions.
