    Never happen! You need at leate a 108. :rofl:

    Don't worry about your IQ. That is just a measure of your ability to take IQ tests. If you want to learn programing get a compiler for some language (Doesn't really matter which) and start programming.

    Your IQ is not important! With enough work, anyone can hack into the CIA!

    I hear that's a good way of getting a job there.

    After, of course, serving a few years in the state pen...

    This will tell if if your smart enough:

    Code (Text):

    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>

    using std::cin;
    using std::cout;

    int main(){

    string a = "Yes";
    string b = "No";

    char dummy;

    cout << "Do you wanna know if you're smart enough to be a programmer?\n";
    cin >> dummy;
    cout << "Well, " << a <<" you are.  Even if you did input something into a variable called dummy.\n";

    return 0;
