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.





In case of any problems with your code, you can take a look in the forum, you'll find the answer, only for this problem, in various languages.

I m getting compile error but the program runs on the gcc compiler i have. What to do ????

Mitch Schwartz: 2015-01-20 03:21:05

When you submit Java code, it gets run as Main.java on SPOJ server (as you can see from the error message), so either change your class name to Main or remove the word public.

I've got a problem since I've never uploaded my codes. Im sure that code is good, but it says: "Main.java:4: class test is public, should be declared in a file named test.java
public class test
1 error"
Please help, no time to waste...

@James Barcus The input doesn't have to be stored, you can, if you wish, but it's not necessary. Remember that input and ouput streams are separated from each other, and you can print immediately when you read a number.

I understand it all stops at 42, easy enough to understand. But it gives no information on how many inputs can be made or if it should output immediately or be stored. If it's stored, how inputs should be stored?

Also, I don't understand how you rewrite. If the input is 1 and the output should be 1, how do you rewrite a 1 to be a 1?

What is input size ? as input is taking any number of integer.Output has to stop process when input as 42 number will come .but what is input size or it works on predefined input only?

Do not forget to return a 0 in your main method in C

Your program will stop reading when it reaches 42. That does not mean 42 is the last number in the input.

How can the example have an input "99" when the program is supposed to stop processing inputs after it reads in "42"?
