This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I was told to write a small program that finds the floor of logb(X). I took the main functionality of the program to create what I pasted below. In the program I have below, the base and x-value are already there - it's just for the concept.
I was told to use nested loops. However, I feel that the way I did it is fine. Would it be better if I used a nested loop? I'm not sure I would know exactly how to go about doing it, thought I'm sure there are a lot of ways to do it.
If your assignment was to write a program that finds the floor of logb(X), then the method you use is up to you. If your assignment was to write a program that uses nested loops, then you need to use nested loops. You need to ask whoever gave you the assignment whether what you have done is okay.
