Teacher: Your program has to be at least 2000 lines long.

    Do something silly like
    if (true) {
    $a = 1;
    }
    When you're declaring variables. For shits and giggles of course

    Seems that you are a newcomer.

    Kuba kuba = new Kuba();

    kuba.print("Welcome to devRant!");

    @jAsE imagine when you missed a semicolon and the error log gives you more than 100 errors saying 'Probably a semicolon is missing....'

    Make a program that parses your project en unrolls every loop. Let that program run on itself :)

    This actually happened to one of my friend's class. It's so silly coz he has a solution thats like 30 - 40 lines but the teacher rejected it coz its not thousands of lines XD

    Write a code that writes a source code, with a lot of random for loops and printf:s with random messages.

    Use COBOL. A simple Hello World is about two pages long, of you print it.

    Compile it into Assembly and turn that in

    Apply a short line length code style. More lines, same logic.

    @Tasperen while this is fine in PHP and JS (when using var) in most programming languages that I'm aware of there is a block scope which means $a is not available outside that if's body
  • 3
    @dimitarnestorov The more lines then.
    int a;
    if(true)
    {
    a = 1;
    }
    And @Tasperen, if you want to make it really silly, add an else block to that... 8))

    "console.log("fuck my teacher");. Copy and paste it for the remaining lines you need.
    (use your languages equivilant obviously).

    *intentionally writes code in Python just to mess with teacher*

    I'm actually the kind of guy who would do that. No wonder my marks are bad at times 😂

    No problem. I can even write a "hello world" in more than 2k lines. Only for fun of course. That's a cool challenge by the way. I need to design that ;)

    If I were a teacher it'd go the other way.
    you get 100 lines each 80 columns write a program that does this and that.

    Why give a code line number minimum, give them a maximum they'll learn to program much better that way.
