any ideas for C coding projects?


My friends and I want some ideas for programs we can make. Most of friends had very little programming knowledge and we want to use C command line utils (no GUI stuff). So, I would like this to be worthwhile but mainly to teach newbies. Any ideas? :-P

Most of the simple stuff is done, ( for beginners ). Unless you can think of something unsual.

Not something that simple....

How about something that could detect your hardrives, do some testing and give you results about how to improve your setup ( hdparm settings, etc. ) or more dangerously set them for you.

start off with ur own implementation of basic commands like wc, ls, ...... Then design ur own shell then try designing a text editor. By that time u will be either bored of linux or u will be knowing what to do next.

Hack a new syscall into the linux kernel. It's quite simple really.

a easy helper program would be nice ... right now theres man, then info, then regular docs, then gnome's yelp (and probably kde has its own version to)

maybe make a program that would act as a single easy interface for most of these help programs?

Yeah something that says instead of man smbd.conf not available

man smbd.conf not there but man smb.conf is there, or so.

Or you type man samba and it leads you to smd.conf

Something down that line.

Whay not look at some of the command-line tools already there and try duplicating one. It would be a cool excercise to try to write your own grep or ls tool. While there you'll undowbtedly find some feature you want in your version to make it "better"
