    Suggest me a title for the final project in computing.

    Hi,
    I'm studying for the final year of the Bsc degree in computing. And I have to submit a final year project title on this monday. And all the sugetions that I had were ignored by my superviser. I would be glad if any body could suggest me a computing project title.

    Did you know that some states tax truckers' diesel fuel at the pump and never rebate it, while some states rebate some of the fuel taxes if the trucker buys more fuel in that state than he would use driving through it? (computed by the truck's mileage) I didn't know that until I was tweaking some custom-written accounting programming for a local long-haul trucking business specializing in coast-to-coast runs, much of it in perishables. I heard the owner's daughter explaining this to one of the drivers and telling him NOT to fuel up in New Hampshire again, even if the truck stop did give him a free lunch with his fill-up.

    I asked if she would like to have a program written to keep track of the mileage, taxation rates, mileage-based rebates by state, etc, so she could reduce fuel costs, and she jumped at it. I never named the darned thing, but the dispatchers and the owner loved the program, and would have been pleased to pay for it even if I called it "WORTHLESS SNOT".

    The moral: Your first task is to determine if there is a real-world need that you can design a program to address, then give the program a name and title your project appropriately. Just don't call the program "WORTHLESS SNOT" - that one's mine.

    A friend of mine created his own programming language for his comp science degree. Compiler and everything.

    Yeah, i also had to create my own language in my compilers class. I named it "Olive Oil". :smile: It was pretty hard, you have to build a context free grammar, make sure it is unambiguous, generate symbol table and action table, code the lexical analyzer, the semantic analyzer and then, on top of this, you have to generate low level code (assembly or machine code). That was the hardest class.

    How about comparing some RFC's? for effectivness.

    For example 2 routing protocols: IS-IS and OSPF, which are both link state, so are similar but one was built for the IOS protocol stack and the other for the IP stack..

    Just an example.. but you could really analysis some RFC's and see where you could improve them, perhaps you could even contribute to the open source ideal and submit your ideas to the IETF..

    If you need help you need to be more specific, i don't have the time to go over the whole thing, it's quite an extensive/laborious project. There are some good books on compilers which guide you through all the steps you need. You better brush up on your "Theory of Computation" because it is essential.

    woohoo PDAs CFLs ugh funny how i took to simliar classes one from math and one from cs and i get an A+ on teh math version and a C+ on the cs vs argh. Language theory is fun stuff, but i much prefer NP vs P topics.

    I'm also taking two class this semester, one in math and one in cse that are absolutely equivalent, except in the cse version i actually have to code the algorithms. In math we only briefly, or not even, go over the algorithms. I'm doing well enough on both.
