This guy in my C++ class never does his program. A few days before the assignment is due, he will go to people and "ask" for help. Usually he'll ask if he can see their code, and when they are not looking, he'll do a "Ctrl C" for copy on all of the code and paste it somewhere (E-mail or wait til after they leave). well, yesterday i have a feeling the bastard did the same thing with my code. Now what troubles me is that the teacher mentioned to the class that there has been a lot of cheating going on. That he will "check" each code to see if they are the same. -i am assuming that he is using a program to load the files and compare them. is this for reals or is the teacher just trying to scare us? We have to submit a disk with our source code on the day of the demo. i'm hella scared and don't wanna get caught. Does anyone have any info on this? my main question is if words are compared, or if algorithms are compared. WHat about //comments? are these compared as well?
