uva g++ compilers are little compact in header files & also this compiler
does not pull some header file if not included as in normal windows compilers ...

are the functions ecvt() ,gcvt() ... converting double to string are present in uva compiler

When I submit a C program, which calles [fge]cvt(), it compiles, so I guess, the answer to your question should be "yes".
But I have no idea, why the same program, submitted as a C++ source doesn't compile.

You can use sprintf() to convert double to a string instead.

yes i think its better of using sprintf in order to convert double to string
but there is other logic i suppose ie
log(n)+1 gives number of digits of number n .. i want to no brother
that is this logic works :wink:

any way thanks man.....

I don't know.. but possibly very big.. but surely fit in 32bit signed integer..

think about log. We can find the number of digit by log(10 base, not ln).
Ex: if log(12334), then we get 4.
Finally the formula will be

Code: Select all

The judge gives me Run Time Error for the following code :-

Code: Select all


using namespace std;

long double logNfactorial(unsigned long int n)
    //static to reuse past stored results 
    static vector<long double> logNf(2, 0);

    for(int i = logNf.size(); i <= n; i++)
        logNf.push_back(logNf[i-1] + log10(i));
    return logNf[n];

int main()
    unsigned long int n, k;
    while(cin >> n >> k)
        cout << (unsigned long int)
             << endl;
    return 0;
For a large value I get Abort as output

Code: Select all

% ./a.out 
999999 999
99999999 9999

I think the static vector is causing memory over flow or something.
Anyway, you don't need the vector at all.

	 return 0;


unsigned long int fact(int n)

	int result[10000],carry,index;
	unsigned long int sum=0;
			for(int i=2;i<=n;i++)
				for(int j=0;j<=index;j++)


		   //cout<<n<<"! \n";

Why are you creating new threads for a problem whose discussions already exists!!
Don't create a new thread. Make your post in an existing one.

--and also use Code tags, when posting your code.
