Template code for competitive programming

Hi Codechef Community,

I’ve written a blog post which might help newbies to boost up their speed during the contests. The post is regarding the template code I use in coding contests. The template code really helped me many times. So, I want to share it with you all.

Blog-post covers the following sub-topics:

  1. Macros and typedef
  2. Most frequently used functions and constants

I hope codechef don’t consider copying templates as plagiarism…


For newbie Java Programmers

I personally feel since java doesn’t include the concept of macros you should stick to a plain and simple template which helps you in fast input and output.

Also people coding in java generally use some good popular IDE’s (for me it is IntelliJ IDEA) which provides you with a good amount of auto-completion and with some practice it becomes quite handy and fast.

There is no need of any special IDE, I code in notepad or ideone.
