Are you going to hold Professor McQuain's mistake against him? Have you not made any mistakes recently? The different is, his was made publicly. You have probably made hundreds in the course of this project but they were in the privacy of your computer/room/compiler. I do'nt see what's so hard about coming up with your own test data with cases not specifically mentioned. It'll take more work but it's still not rocket science.
: I don't particularly appreciate such a blatant flame from a professor. I mean, " If you want to complain about it, look up /dev/null"
: Is this how professors are expected to treat their students?
: I also don't think the test data is so extraneous -- they often show how to deal with cases which were not clearly mentioned in the specs. Especially when I hear "BE SURE TO TEST YOUR PROGRAM WITH THE NEW DATA" from the instructor, I expect to be able to do so.
