Do you have an idea of what you would like to do?

I would suggest that is the best starting point, then you can see if there is a project that already does some of what you want to do; or if you prefer you can do it all yourself.

I'm sorry, I'm being very vague, I don't even know what I want to do myself.

I am pretty much interested in anything except for games. I like problem solving, math, science, whatever really. I'll look at the sites posted and see what I can find.

Any generic program suggestions? I think I'll try to look over some other peoples projects and see what others have done.

Thanks,
~Zack

Well as I said I'm really not sure what I want to do. I'm interested in anything but games.

Maybe AI or math related...

Well here is an idea. I use KmPlot a mathematical graphing program, but it has some limitations, take a look at it if you like the program go to their web site see if there are any bugs wish lists and if any take your fancy then grab the code and see if you think that it would be feasible to fix the bug add the patch. Even if you don't contribute anything you might learn something, or you could add a function that doesn't add any value other than for being an exercise to learn how the program works.

Obviously this may not be the solution for you, but I hope that it gives you an idea of what you could do. There are a number of difficulties that you would need to overcome on top of having to understand the architecture of the program you will also need to understand the library used, qt ( a far from trivial library) but the qt software does come with some good tutorials which could be a stating point for your adventure.

Whatever you do good luck, and please, enjoy yourself!

Write something that correctly performs

Code:
if(a > b)
  {
  // do something
  }
and other comparison operations regardless of signedness of 'a', 'b', and regardless of their scalar type, i.e. should correctly work on any combination of char, short, long, float, double.

I.e. there should be no warnings likes these:

Code:
warning: comparison of unsigned expression < 0 is always false
warning: comparison is always false due to limited range of data type
