#include<stdio.h>
#include<string.h>

void main(void)
{

  int c;
  int x=0;
	
  
  
  while (scanf("

%d", &c))
{

		if(c == 42)       
		 {
		x=-1;
		}
		else
		{
			if(x== -1)
			{}
			else
			{
	printf("%d",c);
			}
		} 
  }

}

Hello and welcome to Codechef. There are a few points which you must keep in mind while coding in Codechef (in C/C++):

  • The main function should always return a zero. Otherwise the judge will return a Runtime error verdict. So your main function should be like this:

    int main() 
    {
        //Your code
        return 0;
    }
  • To take input till the end do the following:
	
    while(scanf("
%d", &c) != EOF) 
    {
        //Your code
    }

EOF (Short for End Of File) is returned by scanf function when there is no more data in the file to be input.

  • Print the output one line at a time:

    printf("%d
", c);
  • Putting it all together:

#include
#include

int main(void)
{
    int c;
    int x=0;

    while (scanf("
%d", &c) != EOF)
    {

        if(c == 42)       
        {
            x=-1;
        }
        else
        {
            if(x== -1)
            {}
            else
            {
                printf("%d
",c);
            }
        } 
    }
    return 0;
}

Well that works but it is better to have a break statement after c==42 is tested true. If the input were designed to contain too many numbers after the first occurrence of 42 then it can be easily TLEd. Probably Codechef doesn’t want to scare away newbies :slight_smile:

@gultus I agree. But I wanted to make minimal changes to the original code.
