Great program! One little remark: unsolved.htm contains the header 'Solved problems' and than gives a list of problems I did not solve. I was a little confused about it, at first, but knowing what it means, it's ok. Another, even smaller, remark: The first compiler I used (lccwin32.exe) complained a...

In the last digit also fill then 'unused space' at the end of the line with blanks:

Code: Select all

bbbn
bb|n
bbbn
bb|n
bbbn

b-bn
bb|n
b-bn
|bbn
b-bn

etc.
not:

n
bb|n
n
bb|n
n

b-n
bb|n
b-n
|n
b-n
here 'b' is a blank, 'n' is the end of line.

The chambers are numbered 0,1,2,3 and 4, your prog outputs 1,2,3,4,5.
That's an obvious error. Haven't looked at the rest of your algo.

input needed

Hi,

I'm in dire need of some discriminative input. My program works for all cases I can think of, but I'm still getting WAs. I will not publish my code because I think (I hope) it would be a spoiler.
Many thanks in advance,

Thanx mate,

I didn't have a clue on how to bring down execution times, but your discussion is very illusive!

read previous mailing

Why do you open a third thread on 402? If you had read the previous threads, you could have found the answer. One additional note: you don't read line-breaks, so if there is a line-break after the last line in the inputfile, your program won't be able to detect the eof. Another additional note: The ...

Am I misinterpreting the question?

I read the problem description ten times, but I think the following solution to the input "5 20 14" is in accordance with it. Getting WA's make me feel there should only be tiny Ls. Am I right? Or is my code wrong :( aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaab...

The problem description says:
There has to be exactly one column of blanks between two digits.

got c code ac

Thanx guys for the replies. After a frustrating hour of C coding (Kernighan & Ritchie was by my side all the time), using the judge as the only compiler, I finaly got my code accepted. I'll check out djgpp soon, but I will stick to Pascal as much as possible; it flows from the fingers more easy, for...

is this at all possible in Pascal

I noticed that none of the 121 solvers of this problem did it in Pascal. I tried it too, but I'm getting WA's, whatever floating point datatype I use. Do I realy have to dig up my rusty C knowledge, translate the code, steal some 32-bit compiler, and try my luck that way? From the foregoing discussi...

sleepless nights...

Since I read the discussion on this subject, I've been trying to solve this problem too. No success; spilled some 30 submissions, but all I get is WA. I'm convinced that there are double definitions of a cave, something like A:BCD;B:CD;A:E;C:DE;D:ABC;E:D. where cave A is defined twice (or more, I do...

You're absolutely right, WhiteShadow. I didn't notice that on first sight. Now that I've been coding a little, I discovered that my observations are of little use. They could bring down calculating times, but not enough for a pure brute force attack to finish in time :cry: I'm not through with this ...
