    You may assume that this has undefined behavior.

    >when will the result be out.. cant wait....
    When my computer is fixed and returned to me with a reasonable repair cost. Forward all requests to hurry up to 555-5555, ask for Dave the repair man and tell him I sent you.

    Note: Most likely I'll get it back this afternoon and post the results sometime tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    One thing...

    If you find 6 e-mails saying they're my intermediate entries, only read the last one, please? I think I got to re-learn that ever-so-complicated cut-then-paste combination. I submitted 3 entries without a makeInteger function...


    anyway, I'll try for the advanced, but no guarantees there.

    do we get bonus points if printf("%s, %s", toString(x), toString(y)); works.. And if the implementation is just toooo simple(obvious) will it loose points... Since i feel that if the obvious implementation is used the advanced level just needs changing of 2 lines of the intermediate level code....

    That's some program you have there...only two lines of code difference?

    Hello. Back from vacation and ready to get coding Anyways guess I'll wait for the next contest since I'm not sure if any entries are being accepted and I don't think I could figure this one out...

    The last I checked, almost nobody was learning C++ before the C subset.
    I started learning C and then quit after a little while, when I decided I was actually ready for programming I went to C++ and all I remember from C is printf()...

    I believe vasnath. I had a great idea which would've been *real* fast. Too bad I had no time to make it. Oh well, next contest...

    i am not sure wheather mine is fast.. I thought of something fast but that seems to be too big for such a prooblem.. And not worth implementing it....... The solution i have given now.. i am not sure wheather it would be correct because when i look at it the implementation looks so funny... (though it gives correct output)..
