I have to make a complicated program for school and i decided to make a recipe book.And i need to know how i should start making it since i dont have a clue ^_^' lol


Any help would be much appreciated

    How much Pascal do you know at this point? The simplest method would be to have a separate file for each recipe, another file for a table of contents. The program would display the table of contents and prompt the user for which recipe he/she wants, get input and then display the appropriate recipe file. That assumes you know how the program files (Assign, ReSet, Close, ReadLn, WriteLn).

    The again, maybe you want something more than just a file display?

    I assume he also needs to use a data structure such as a Linked List Record for this.

    Why do you assume that? There's nothing in the problem (as stated) that demands it, so the only reason for using a linked list would be if his teacher specifically required it.

    Yes i know about assign,reset,close and the like what you described is just what i want to do.But i would want to know how to make an unlimited space to store recipes,thats what i really dont know at this point of the project.

    When I write a program the first thing I do is look at the data and see if I can simplify it. A recipe would have (1)the name of the dish being prepared, (2)a list of ingredients, (3)instructions for mixing and cooking, and (4)an index number. All this can get pretty complicated for the programmer, particularly if you decide to subdivide something like an ingredient into (a)name, (b)quantity, and (c)unit of measurement. For your project, I suggest you bypass all this complexity (at least for your first draft) by putting each recipe in a page of text. This simplifies things considerably because, as far as your program is concerned, each recipe is simply a text file and the program has no knowledge, or need to know, what

  • well. I know least about the topic discussed here. But I will definitely post to you if get any related information.

    Thanks.
  • oh,this is interesting..would this be possible? LOL,..sounds good! may succeed with this one..
