# stack overflow

Posted 07 May 2008 - 10:10 PM

this whole part of code stack overflow. My intention was if this line "if (c > dCol && sq[r][c - 1] != '#' && sq[r][c - 1] != ' ')" is false then jump to the next else if statement. If this line "if (c> dCol && sq[r][c - 1] != '#' && sq[r][c - 1] != ' ')" is true, when the origin point start moving or when turning point takes place, this line "if (sq[r][c] == ' ' && sq[r][c + 1] != ' ')" will always be true, IE execute this line "spmtn1(r, c - 1)". when the point moves some where in the middle of the line, no turning takes place, then this line "if (sq[r][c] == ' ' && sq[r][c + 1] == ' ')" will become true, the previous one will become false. then do the check on this line "if ((sq[r][c]>= sq[r][c + 1] && sq[r][c - 1]>= sq[r][c]) || (sq[r][c] <= sq[r][c + 1] && sq[r][c - 1] <= sq[r][c]))", if it's true then execute this line "spmtn1(r, c - 1);", if it's false then jump to next else if statement.

hi guys, i have fixed the stack overflow issues and it doesn't happen for the time being. now the problem is this part of code doesn't do anything. no output solution. pls advise.

Okay, first off, it's pretty much impossible to read that code because of the comment density.

Anyway, I'm gonna go ahead and say that your issue is probably due to lack of curly brackets. Your tabbing makes it seem like you have a few large groups of ifs with several ifs inside each one, but you don't have brackets, so they will not be interpreted that way.

i have grabbed part of the code and change it in the following way:

if (c < dCol && sq[r][c + 1] != '#' && sq[r][c + 1] != ' ') { -->if this line is false then jump to the next else if, but if it is true if (sq[r][c] == ' ' && sq[r][c - 1] != ' ') {-->if this line is true then execute the statement, the below if statements won't be executed, but if it is false spmtn1(r, c + 1); } } if (c < dCol && sq[r][c + 1] != '#' && sq[r][c + 1] != ' ') {-->as this line still remain as true, same first if statement as above if (sq[r][c] == ' ' && sq[r][c - 1] == ' ') {-->if the above second if statement is false then this line will always be true if ((sq[r][c] >= sq[r][c - 1] && sq[r][c + 1] >= sq[r][c]) || (sq[r][c] <= sq[r][c - 1] && sq[r][c + 1] <= sq[r][c])) {-->then check this line, if it is true then execute the statement, if it is false then jump to the next else if spmtn1(r, c + 1); } } } else if

i think still having errors according to the logic as it still not working. pls advise. thanks in advance.
