JAVAC - Java vs C ++

no tags 

Apologists of Java and C++ can argue for hours proving each other that their programming language is the best one. Java people will tell that their programs are clearer and less prone to errors, while C++ people will laugh at their inability to instantiate an array of generics or tell them that their programs are slow and have long source code.

Another issue that Java and C++ people could never agree on is identifier naming. In Java a multiword identifier is constructed in the following manner: the first word is written starting from the small letter, and the following ones are written starting from the capital letter, no separators are used. All other letters are small. Examples of a Java identifier are javaIdentifier, longAndMnemonicIdentifier, name, nEERC.

Unlike them, C++ people use only small letters in their identifiers. To separate words they use underscore character ‘_’. Examples of C++ identifiers are c_identifier, long_and_mnemonic_identifier, name (you see that when there is just one word Java and C++ people agree), n_e_e_r_c.

You are writing a translator that is intended to translate C++ programs to Java and vice versa. Of course, identifiers in the translated program must be formatted due to its language rules — otherwise people will never like your translator.

The first thing you would like to write is an identifier translation routine. Given an identifier, it would detect whether it is Java identifier or C++ identifier and translate it to another dialect. If it is neither, then your routine should report an error. Translation must preserve the order of words and must only change the case of letters and/or add/remove underscores.


The input file consists of several lines that contains an identifier. It consists of letters of the English alphabet and underscores. Its length does not exceed 100.


If the input identifier is Java identifier, output its C++ version. If it is C++ identifier, output its Java version. If it is none, output 'Error!' instead.

@maverick THANKS for the last test case finally AC..

Dushyant Singh: 2015-06-14 08:29:32

are numbers allowerd? Is mc2D valid?

@Bhuvnesh look at the paragraph properly, nAME and n_a_m_e will be valid a/c to nEERC and n_e_e_r_c

@Bhuvnesh: Check out a__b (consecutive '_' ) ..

I think the test cases when ERROR! is generated are- the first letter is capital or underscore, the last letter is underscore or the word contains both underscore and capital. If there is any more, please tell, I am getting WA's on my submission.
The program works fine with converting the strings and stops after reading the EOF.
Some of the test which I have tried are as follows-

Thanks in advance

Hi all. Can you please tell me how many test cases or how to determine the end of inputs.

Note that if the 1st char is Uppercase, then we must print "Error!".
Ex: Arjun, Java, etc..
Costed me 3 WA`s.
