Happy that GitHub finally works I have found some code to just upload it :)

It’s a little project in Java I have been doing for a friend in February 2011. I gave it up after his new specification would require from me rewriting all the code…

The project started from the problem how many rectangles of size A can be fit in rectangle of size B without cutting. Then the problem was extended to 3D and new features have been added. It’s generally nothing special and is quite small (1000 lines of code inc. partial documentation), but I have learnt few interesting things, such as painting on graphics or sending print tasks to the printer. Also it was quite interesting to work for someone else, I wish the specification was given more professionally, but I guess it’s a real life problem too. The worst thing was that I didn’t know all features required at the point I started writing the program so I couldn’t plan anything or create any design. The code available here. Some screenshots:
