Press "Enter" To Develop A Burning Hatred For Your Professor

No lab assignment should ever involve a part in which one can reasonably be expected to press "enter" over five thousand times in a row, counting keypresses, as the only way to count the number of instructions a C program executes during the course of its execution. (Not code-lines, assembly instructions.) And not once, but four times.

This is actually the first assignment I've abandoned out of disgust and physical pain (tendonitis) rather than inability to continue. I can go on, it just hurts, and it's not a reasonable assignment.
