comment What programming problems are best solved by using pointers?
Ask about what programming problems are best solved using pointers, not what projects/programs. You can write a program either using pointers or not - they (projects) are simply too big a construct for a meaningful answer.

comment How much Stack Overflow reputation makes it worth putting in CV?
@Job - true, though if they do attract such high upvotage (?) it tends to be very quickly and most of the rep that would have been accumulated will end up not added as result of the daily rep cap (200 atm).
