CSCI 1301 – Project 1

Clément Aubert

August 29, 2019

Challenge

In Visual Studio, create a project named “Project01”. Write your name and the date in a delimited comment at the very beginning of your code.

In the main method,

An execution could give something like:

caubert would like to know your height in centimeters. Please enter it:
1͟7͟0͟.͟5͟ ⮠͟
caubert computed that your height is 5 feet and 7 inches.

Note that “170.5” was entered by the user, not by the programmer: your program should work with any height! Another example could be:

caubert would like to know your height. Please enter it, followed by enter:
8͟0͟.͟8͟⮠͟
caubert computed that your height is 2 feet and 7 inches.

Submission

Once your project is done, zip the folder into a file “lname_fname.zip”, where “lname” (resp. “fname”) is your last name (resp. first name). Upload this zip on D2L before Friday, September 13, 11:30 PM, in the “Project01” assignment submission folders.

Advice and Recommendations

Grade

I will use the following guideline to grade your work over 20:

Points
You submitted something  + 20
It is not the right file (e.g., only the sln, or not a zip archive)  − 19 or  − 5 if the source code is present
The archive does not have the right name (i.e., “lname_fname.zip”)  − 2
The project does not have the right name (i.e., “Project01”)  − 2
There are no delimited comments at the beginning with your name and the date  − 2
Your program does not compile  − 15
The variable for your username has the wrong type or value.  − 3
The first message is not properly displayed.  − 3
You are not correctly reading the height of the user.  − 3
Your conversion from centimeters to feet and inches is off.  − 4
The second message is not properly displayed.  − 3
You added meaningful comments to your code.  + 1

Of course, I will use this table only as a guideline, and use my judgment to grade your work, but I believe it is useful for you to see where my expectations will be.
