TEST - Life, the Universe, and Everything

Your program is to use the brute-force approach in order to find the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. More precisely... rewrite small numbers from input to output. Stop processing input after reading in the number 42. All numbers at input are integers of one or two digits.





If you have some troubles with your code, you can take a look in the forum, you'll find the answer, only for this problem, in various languages.

hey this problem using array? or no

got it, u have to simplify ur code as much as it possible

I just saw an example, from this website, of what "is good." The example was very simplistic and did not use, as an example, a means of ensuring a three digit number was entered.

Personally, I thought my "program" was to ensure a three digit number had to be filtered so all my personally created programs took that into effect. I failed each time.

Also, the forum area says one should use printf() and scanf() in C++ because cout and cin are too slow.

After 42, 99 has been taken as input according to the given example. So, really, how many inputs are to be taken?

How many input numbers

amitmishra22: 2017-03-16 20:00:57

It should be while (!(n==41))

Up to 88 it was visible

read input from user one by one and keep printing it until 42 comes. no need of array at all.

This is so simple that makes it difficult to understand. Took a leap of faith with my code, and it worked. Keep it simple, really simple.

You just need to accept input until 42 is typed in and just print the numbers, no need of sorting.
