# -1.00 execution time in tiebreaker question

 4 When do i get a execution time of -1.00 ? What does it mean ? The verdict is still the wa but what does -1 signify in execution time? asked 12 Jun '16, 11:17 51●3 accept rate: 33%

 0 I guess it means Idleness Limit Exceeded . It happens when your code is infinitely waiting for an input from stdin. However, i am not completely sure answered 12 Jun '16, 13:45 291●1●4 accept rate: 21% 4 Congragulations!! You just solved the halting problem... (14 Jun '16, 00:13) sandeep93★
 0 I think it has got nothing to do with time as such,it just means Wrong answer. (I actually got the same verdict and when i rectified a small bug it gave correct answer.) answered 13 Jun '16, 10:26 1 accept rate: 0%
 0 Make very very sure you're flushing all you I/O buffers. I had this problem in Python and I fixed it by doing sys.stdout.flush() sys.stdout.flush()  after every time I print a response. answered 14 Jun '16, 02:28 142●7 accept rate: 10%
 0 I was facing the same problem in Snackdown's elimination round yesterday even after using fflush(stdout) after answering each query.
