Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Find nth root of a large number

    I tend to do it without the libraries.

    You're still using the standard library, aren't you? ; )

    It looks like it a choice between you implementing a bignum library yourself, or reusing a solution that others have sacrificed years to perfect. Take a look at GMP, snoopy11 linked to it above.

    Then again, implementing a simple solution (probably slow, compared to GMP or others) is kind of fun.
  2. In Topic: getline(cin, string);

    Posted 29 Aug 2015

    @Jim: yes... Since use namespace std was used and <istream> was included (in <iostream>).

    My point is - it's not at all clear what it is, how it works and why it works, because the sample/rest of the post is lacking. Assumptions are made that might not be obvious to beginners. It's important to note that ws there is actually std::ws from <istream> (so it's available with <iostream>). Your first post in this topic was to the point and had lots of useful information - in contrast this fix from cplusplus.co was basically "Here, try this magic" which might work or not depending on what OP actually wants (which is also not quite clear, but that's a whole another issue).
  3. In Topic: getline(cin, string);

    White space.

    Yes, that much is obvious, what I mean is how it is defined in the code itself. What type is it?

    @up - It's as good of a guess as any other. OP shouldn't make us guess though. ; )
  4. In Topic: getline(cin, string);

    Posted 29 Aug 2015

    @up What's ws?

    @op - it seems like according to what Jim wrote you need to look what's before the first getline - is it by any chance a cin >> something? Try making a small compilable program representing the problem, because we don't really have anything to work on here. What you posted isn't enough.
  5. In Topic: i want a simple program that print 1 to 1000 no. but in txt

    I started to learn C / C++ with Dev-C++. Simple compiler with no need to create projects and such...

    I started learning programming with Atari C64 BASIC, but it doesn't mean it's the best way today. ; )
    Dev-C++ is an IDE, and the work on the original was stopped some long time ago - the actual compiler that was bundled with it was GCC, the last build featured a pretty old version of it.

    I'm aware that there are some forks with newer releases of GCC nowadays, but I think it would be quite important to point people directly to those when mentioning Dev-C++, and make them aware that other releases might ship with very outdated tools.

    I think in the light of the above Code::Blocks is far better of a recommendation, or a separate installation of MinGW/GCC and some IDE like Eclipse, Code::Blocks, NetBeans (which is my favorite)...

    You had some neat pieces of advice there. Couldn't stop myself from voting! Especially the references to the standard. Concise and to the point! ;)

    No, it's not. I've seen you naked, doing the dance for me. The fact that your mom caught us at that moment changes nothing!
    Traitor! :'(

    Come on, with your skills, you should be able to find a job in IT pretty soon.
    BTW, I completed Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman, and it was awesome ^_^
