    A challenge


    I'm new here and i got this problem....

    My function is to generate a function that is the same with atoi, just that the string library cannot be used.

    eg, if the string is keyed in as "123.87", the value returned is 123.87. If "123.67.78" is keyed in, the value should be 123.67. The second decimal is ignored.

    Kindly help? thanks....
    #include <stdio.h>
    main ()
    char array[5]; 
    int i;
    double sum = 0;
    float d= 10;
    int count = 0;
    printf ("Enter a string to be converted to double:\n");
    for (i=0; i<5; i++)
    scanf("%c", &array[i]);
    if (*array>= 65 && *array <= 90 || *array >= 97 && *array<= 122) {
    printf ("-32768");   
    while (*array != '\0' && count !=2)
    		if (count == 0)
           	 sum = sum*10 +(*array - 48);
          	 if (count == 1)
              	sum = sum + ((*array -48)/d);
               	d = d*10;
          	*array ++;
    		 if (*array == '.')
           	 { count ++;
    printf ("The number is %f.\n", sum);
    printf ("The number of decimal is %d.\n", count);

    /*sniffle*/damnit, vVv, I love ya, man.
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;

    Jack -

    I am posting this, and the reason VvV posted what he did, because you did not use code tags on this thread. In the furture please use Code Tags. They make your code MUCH easier to read and people will be much more likely to help you if you do. And they'll be happy about helping you

    For example:

    Without code tags:

    for(int i=0;i<5;i++)
    cout << "No code tags are bad";

    With Code Tags:
    for(int i=0;i<5;i++)
         cout << "This code is easy to read";
    This is of course a basic example...more complicated code is even easier to read with code tags than without.

    I've added code tags for you this time. They can be added by putting [code] at the beginning of your code and [/code] at the end. More information on code tags may be found at the link in my signature. Any further questions or ways I can help please feel free to PM me.

    Good Luck,

    If you're new to the boards, welcome and reading this will help you get started.
