Print a newline char at the end of a line.

printf("%.2f\$\n",sum/100);

### UVa 11340 - Newspaper

I have a problem with this excersice, mi code is:

Code: Select all

``````import java.io.BufferedReader;

PrintWriter out;
HashMap<Character, Integer> payments;
double total;

public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
new Main().run();
}

void run() throws IOException {
in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
out = new PrintWriter(System.out, true);
solve();
out.flush();
}

void solve() throws IOException {
payments = new HashMap<Character, Integer>();
int N = Integer.parseInt(in.readLine());
for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
int K = Integer.parseInt(in.readLine());
for (int j = 0; j < K; j++) {
String line = in.readLine();

int M = Integer.parseInt(in.readLine());
for (int l = 0; l < M; l++) {
payment(in.readLine());
}
total /= 100;
out.printf("%.2f\$\n", total);
}
}

double payment(String statement) {
for (int j = 0; j < statement.length(); j++)
if (payments.containsKey(statement.charAt(j)))
total += payments.get(statement.charAt(j));
return total;
}
}``````

Don't double post.

Something strange. When i made your array str global judge gave accepted.

Character code has range 0 ~ 255, so use unsigned char.

brianfry713 wrote:Read this thread:http://acm.uva.es/board/viewtopic.php?t=24824

A signed 1 byte char always has range of -128 to 127.

For some reason the problem setter decided to use more than the standard range of 0 to 127 characters in the judge's input.
I read so many posts in this thread saying to use unsigned char. But I got accepted using char and i didn't add 128 to make it positive. Here is my code. http://ideone.com/YMbgGq
Is judge's input changed? Brianfry can you fix this? (In my accepted code if i make char array local it gives RuntimeError. Very strange. )

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

If you are reading and writing outside of an array boundary you are going to get undefined results. Just because you manage to get AC doesn't mean it's correct.
The chars in the judge's input could be negative if you read them as a signed char.
You should either read them as an unsigned char or convert to an int and add 128. Make your array size 256.

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

In my accepted code i read characters as signed char, so as you mentioned it can be negative or greater than 127.
I added 2 lines to check values of characters and if negative of greater 127 made infinite loop. Again ACC, not TLE. Here's code. http://ideone.com/rwziCe
Can you check it?

Getting wrong answer . Please help me i used +127 so as to be sure

Code: Select all

``````#include <iostream>

long long n,i,j,a[257],p,t,k,z,l;

char b[100000];
char ch;
scanf("%lld",&t);
while(t>0)
{
t--;
for(i=0;i<=256;i++)
a[i]=0;
scanf("%lld",&n);
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
while(getchar()!='\n');
scanf("%c",&ch);
scanf("%lld",&p);

a[ch+128]=p;
}
scanf("%lld",&k);

s=0;
//printf("hui  %d",k);
for(j=0;j<k;j++)

//printf("hui");
scanf("%*c%[^\n]",b);

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

Change reading to

Code: Select all

``````scanf("%lld",&k);
while(getchar()!='\n');

for (s = j = 0; j < k; j++)
{
cin.getline(b, 100000);

for (l = 0; b[l]; l++) s += a[ b[l] + 128 ];
}

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

Thanks lighted .
My code got accepted. But still not able to figure out what was wrong with scanf("%*c%[^\n]",b);
As i have used this on other question on spoj and have got accepted.

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

lighted I don't have access to the judge's input. The table contains only ASCII values between 0 and 127, but the article does not. A signed char can not be greater than 127.

unreleased, read this thread. If you are reading the input as a signed char you will get negative values in the article.

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

Thanks Brianfry for your reply. Everything become obvious.

In the code above i checked if table contains negative value when reading characters as signed char. So table doesn't have characters with negative value. Yes, you right that signed char cannot be greater than 127. So it is unnecessary to check it.

I also checked article. And as you said it contains negative values. This was the reason why i got RE when i made char array local. (When made global it accidentaly got accepted).

But i still don't see a reason to use unsigned char. Table contains only standart characters between 0 and 127, only for these characters price would be paid. We should not consider other characters, especially those non-standart characters that greater than 127. I just added checking if character in article is between 0 and 127.

### Re: 11340 - Newspaper

There are many ways to parse input that work. Signed or unsigned char is fine as long as you handle the values that don't fall between 0 and 127 correctly.
