What is supposed to happen here? I could not get the C code to compile. --[[User:Rdm|Rdm]] 01:50, 4 July 2011 (UTC) :Oh sorry, should have said it's C99, gcc -std=c99 -Wall -lm stuff.c, for example. --~~ ::Ok, I built it ::

$ CFLAGS=-std=c99 make clock

::but when I run it my display does not look very clock like: ::

       :--::...                                :----------:: .                             ..::--- *%*
                   . c&-                                   .-.c&:                                  .-:.aa:
                    :-. :&c.                                :-.  -&c                                :-:   -#*

::could you maybe post a screenshot or something? Thanks. --[[User:Rdm|Rdm]] 13:30, 4 July 2011 (UTC) :::I changed a code a little, it should work now (your terminal's interpretation of carriage return is different from mine). "Screenshot": :a&:

Because the task is called "Draw a clock", rather than "Draw a timer" maybe we should have something about a clock in it. Perhaps: As an option show the face of an analogue clock with animated hour minute and second hands. (or alternatively rename to "Draw a timer".

: Isn't the task description specific enough? --[[User:Ledrug|Ledrug]] 19:14, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
::Yeah it is. But it is not really about drawing a clock. We could rename this "Draw a timer". [[User:Markhobley|Markhobley]] 19:31, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
::FWIW, We could have a task for drawing an analogue clock, which includes showing the numbers round the face, and the animated hour, minute, and second hands. That would be better suited to "Draw a clock". [[User:Markhobley|Markhobley]] 19:35, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
:::What does a "timer" look like? Do you mean a stopwatch? "Timer" to me means a text clock (i.e. "00:00:00.000"), which is not what this task wants. I think "clock" is a nice general word to cover lots of possibilities (though not the obviously silly suggestion of a mouth counting "one on thousand"), and it's a word that people use more commonly. "Analog" would be a welcome addition to make sure people don't print numbers alone. --[[User:Mwn3d|Mwn3d]] 19:39, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
