Have you seen that it is multiple input problem?

Off course, that's why I use the code:
[c]while ( scanf ( " %i ", & n ) ! = EOF )[/c]
Oh, wait a minute! Do you mean that the multiple input is not the n value?
In that case, there can be 2 possibilities :
1. One board that is played more than once.
2. Many board, but each board played only once. (Like starting a new game but with the same board size)
Or neither?
Which part of input that is multiple?
Thnx,

You have it wrong!
If you touch a mine, all the mines should appear, but you only show the mines the have been touched, the rest is ok....

### the end to the WA mystery of 10279 Minesweeper

Make sure you know 1) it's a multiple input problem and 2)should a mined position be touched, the 3rd figure in the problem description page is what you should be outputting (numbers indicating number of bombs around positions that have been touched PLUS revealing all bombs).

Hope this would end the WA mystery of this simple problem.

We have to write a code able to handle any inputs right ? I don't understand why should care about the way of testing.

### Multiple Input ANNOYING!!!

I just hope for those problems with multiple input format, they could specify it directly in the problem page instead of just coloring the check mark next to the problem link. But I guess that's too much work for them, otherwise that could probably reduce up to, I think, 30% of WA. Just a thought.

I agree with stcheung. It would be better to specify it in the page AND with colored mark.
Personally, when I have a problem number, I often use the url instead of using the mouse. It's really faster and easy as the url is really easy to find ( acm.uva.es/p/v(number/100)/number.html ). This way is so helpfull that I guess lot of people use it. It is really frustrating to get WA for a correct source.

sure, it's not an order, but a whish. I do not have this kind of requirements for voluntary people who give much of their time to make this marvellous site.
