Hello,

I would like to sign up for help but can't seem to get an invite for a queue

or to be able to join a queue
Scott Reese

Hm, shows the queue is closed and it should be opened?

I'm about to help Manuela; I just sent her a message
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:25 AM
Hello Rishi, happy to see you online!
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:25 AM
But if you hop on the queue with your email, I'll give you a call right after
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:26 AM
I don't have access to google hangouts as I'm out of the country and don't have my cell phone on (shows no service). But I have a basic enough question that you may be able to help.
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:26 AM
Let me see if I can figure out how to hop on a que.
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:26 AM
Ah --
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:26 AM
if it's just by text, that's fine; you can just ask me now
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:27 AM
Manuela, I just tried calling you on Hangouts but didn't get through
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:28 AM
For homework 3 we are restricted to covered material + the reading. Chapter 12.4 is part of the reading and subsection "Using files for output" covers writing to files. However, Nick only covered reading files. Is writing files a legal move for this homework?
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:32 AM
Where do you want to write files?
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:32 AM
or rather, why do you want to do that
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:33 AM
I'm at a loss at how to convert the secretWord and guesses into a hint, however by writing a file I can track true / false and print the "-" based on that condition.
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:34 AM
I'm assuming I Can edit the file was about to attempt that but before I spend any more time I figured I'd ask for this clarification. No sense in wasting time.
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:34 AM
You shouldn't need to write to a file -- keeping track of information in variables should be sufficient
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:35 AM
Writing this intermediate information to a file is too complicated of a solution in this situation
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:35 AM
Aye, but the code gets clunky.
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:35 AM
I think file writing will only make it clunkier :)
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:35 AM
That was one of my other thoughts, but figured it was a questionable move lol
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:36 AM
haha, fair enough
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:36 AM
If I can make the file writing work is it legal? Because thus far its much more straightforward to me.
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:37 AM
to work*
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:37 AM
I would definitely discourage you from going down that solution
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:37 AM
Think about how variables in your program can be used to store the same information that you want to put in a file
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:37 AM
I completely understand that, but what I am asking is if its legal. :)
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:38 AM
It will definitely be a major style deduction
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:38 AM
Hm interesting...
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:39 AM
As for if it's legal, let me confer with Nick, one sec
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
No problem, I may not end up doing it that way. Its a curiousity of mine as in the past I've run into this problem and have hated deferring to a limited amount of variables on a task with varying potential variables.
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
OK Nick has made our lives simpler -- he says it's not legal since we haven't covered it yet
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
haha!
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
Ah, but deferring to using variables is much much much faster for the computer
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
Reading and writing to files is orders of magnitude slower than reading and writing to variables
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
Oh! Good to know.
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:40 AM
Well thank you and let Nick know I say thanks as well.
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 10:41 AM
No problem; let me know if you get stuck + want to talk through how to use variables to do this!
Scott Reese
Jul 18, 10:41 AM
Back to rewriting my methods lol!

CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 11:14 AM
Hi Kunal,
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 11:14 AM
Sure, I'll give you a call when I finish with Manuela
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 11:14 AM
You can also ask here if it's quick
Kunal G
Jul 18, 11:31 AM
it is about file reading
CS198 SCPD
Jul 18, 11:37 AM
OK, what's up
Kunal G
Jul 18, 11:40 AM
The assignment states that we should not store all of the words in the program instead, advance a Scanner to exactly the right place and select the word found there to be returned. So I am just curious how to advance without storing word
Kunal G
Jul 18, 11:40 AM
I have written some code but want to make sure it is correct
