This assignment will
give you some practice in writing larger programs. A full specification of the
problem is available as an Adobe
Acrobat (.PDF) file on the resources page. You can
also download all the files you need for the program from there.
The program outline (menu.c) is available on the resources
You can access a working copy of the full dates program in MS-DOS and
Windows formats from the resources page.
You might like to make a copy of this full version to use as a reference when working
on the program. Running it will also give you a feel for what the specifications
