Hi all.
It looks like the list is silently dropping messages with attachments
again, so I'm sending the below for the third time. I'll post the code
at the bottom of the message, though am not sure how it will come
through in the message body. If anyone would like an attachment, feel
free to drop me a line.
It looks like my previous message didn't make it to the list, so I'm
resending.
If anyone is interested, I'm attaching my heat index calculator
program. It accepts temperature and relative humidity on the
command-line, and will prompt if one or both are not given. If you
would rather have the program display an exact unrounded result,
uncomment the appropriate line towards the bottom of the main
function, and comment out the line above it.
To compile it, run:
g++ -o hi hi.cpp
Have fun.
Greg
