Idk where else to turn to but I cannot get my code to count the number of times a user defined "codon" appears" within my first char array (gene).
So far ive gotten it to return values of 0 and 6.
I don't know what Im doing wrong.
can someone show me where my code is wrong?

PS the while loop is unfinished. I still need to add a "do you want to continue y/n" type deals but that's not the part im having issues with.

Another thing, you are searching 'user' at [0], [1] and [2], but declare it as user[2], which is going beyond the bounds of the buffer. You need a character for each of the characters you are going to enter into the buffer as well as one additional one for the terminating zero.

Using scanf() for strings is pretty dangerous, if someone enters a string into your program that's longer than 1 character then it will begin to overwrite the "count" variable and then will start eating into whatever next is placed on the call stack. You might want to look at fgets(), it takes a size parameter so that it can't exceed the given buffer length.

char boo[2];
fgets( boo, sizeof( boo ), stdin );

Thanks, I didnt catch this.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to use that function.
Only thing we've learned in class so far is scanf.

also, i got my code working for the most part.
Not sure why my while loop isn't breaking when a user inputs 'n'.
and if you enter the same codon twice it just adds the result to the previous result. (attatched screenshot)
actual code:

Also, not sure if it matters but Im writing/compiling/running the code using codeblocks in Ubuntu 14.04

>my while loop isn't breaking when a user inputs 'n'
Just read in a string instead of a character and compare the same way you are comparing the codons

>it just adds the result to the previous result
This is because you are declaring and initializing your count variable to 0 outside the loop

I don't know if you're interested in pursuing this sort of thing long-term or if this is just a class that you need to slog through, but you might want to ask about scanf() use in class.

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities have laid a carnage-filled road to hell and back (including heartbleed) and I think it's worth knowing about those things right from the start. When you're first learning you'll fuck up with pointers, memory allocation and the like (at least, I know I did...and still do from time-to-time). But telling someone who isn't in the know to grab strings with scanf() is kind of like telling someone to hammer in fence posts with a large container of nitroglycerin.

There are certain functions in C that you can really fuck yourself with if you're not careful or don't know about beforehand. Food for thought maybe, you can decide if this sort of thing is important to you or not.

Anyhow, I'm glad your stuff is working now.

Try another USB, I have no idea I don't use Kali linux.
What I do know is USBs are generally big pieces of shit, poorly made and die frequently so just go buy another one for $10

I wouldn't trust persistence whatsoever, especially on a device with wear levelling (all USB/SDmicro/flash drives). Instead just create a LUKS container with cryptsetup, and put your evilware in there. Then back it up to bitbucket or github so when you boot you simply type 'git clone https://bitbucket/derp.git' and your container full of evil is ready to go.

Sup /prog/,

I'm just wondering if it's feasible to code android apps in C because that's pretty much the only language I know to use in this kind of thing. Please tell me it's possible, because I definitely don't want to start learning a new language all over again and download all the shit that comes with it. I'm absolutely sure there are some libraries that can be used to translate C code that can be run in android , or even certain flavor of android, or a certain environment, or an emulator, or something.

And if it's possible, where should I start? I'm past the point of busting my ass to get info like this and for that I apologize, it's just that I need to know. Thanks again.

Oh also, I'm not gonna make games and whatnot, just simple apps for convenience and such, and just gonna fiddle with simple pre-existing open-source projects.

Personally I wouldn't bother unless it's for crypto engineering. Java is much easier just point and click basically to drop in Android API calls and then your app runs in the Java virtual machine as it's supposed to instead of a C program with crazy privileges

It would be better if you could just run python programs directly on Android. If Heroku/Google App Engine can figure how to do this in a VM then Google can get "ART" (dalvik replacement) to do it.

If you cannot program, you don't know the limitations, best practices or realities of programming.
I'm ready to say that the hundreds of millions spent on failed public IT-projects in my country are due to people who cannot program,
but think they can do architecture. Then the software ends up with absolutely no coherency.
Please, save a lot of people a lot of frustration and money - If you cannot program, don't try to design a program.

>i put in what you had now my bullets are gone

Right. "list-style-type: none" removes the actual bullet from the list items, so you can use an image instead. I just tested your HTML and CSS with an image of my own and it worked just fine.

What browser are you using? In most, you can hit F12 to bring up the developer console to see, among other things, warnings about bad URLs (which is what I suspect is the case). Ensure that you're referencing the image correctly relative to your HTML file. Remove the spaces from the image's file name - better yet, give it an extremely simple name (a.png) and place it in the same folder as your HTML file so you can make sure you're not missing something obvious.

Also keep in mind that depending on the dimensions of your list items and the composition of the PNG (i.e. what's transparent and what isn't) the "visible" portion of the image might be hidden outside of the element. Try replacing "top left" (which should actually be "left top" now that I think about it) with "center center" or "right bottom".

Probably you've messed up with the path. is the HTML document exactly one level above the "desktop" directory?

I would try moving the image into the same directory as the html file first (remember to update the path in your HTML to not include "desktop/"). Then, after you have it working from the same directory, you can try to include it from another directory.

Original respondent here,

No clue what to tell you, friend. Your HTML/CSS (as you posted it) works fine with a valid image path. I once again recommend installing Firebug and seeing if your page generates any error messages. It's an invaluable tool that will save you lots of time and headaches, no matter how trivial the problem might be.

Depends on what you do know.
First I guess one would have to know the basic languages in web dev: html, js, php, sql etc.
Also you should have a good grasp on (at least) the most common protocols, such as http, tls/ssl and dns.
After that revisit the hacks you've most likely already heard about and that have sparked your interest:
SQL injection, XSS, CSRF. Now you should get quite a bit more out of them. Build something with a
web framework, attack it with CSRF and then protect your project from that attack.
During all this keep notes, and you will see you always have an infinite swamp of abbreviations to look
up next.

It's not about the software you are running.
