Very Cool A* (Astar) Project

For path finding, this is a very neat project:

http://www.codeproje...-implementation-in-C

It shows progress as you go, so helps to understand the A* algo.

I guess you mean that as: interesting choice of names. What are they going to name a possible third and fourth child? (Dania and Aandi maybe)

He he - though I like your candidate choices, they don't seem to share the nice property of the existing names, each of which can be reversed to get the other...

yep, that's what I meant with 'interesting'. I kept the same letters though...

Yes indeed you did!

Perhaps the author of the code could use the search algorithm to enumerate all possible such names...I guess there are easier ways for that though :)

If it's a girl, they could go with 'Diana'.   :)

Obligatory Wikipedia page for the A* search algorithm :)

Thanks, I needed that. :)
