How to troubleshoot problems when sending via email

SUBMITTING VIA E-MAIL IS NOT MORE AVAILABLE

How to troubleshoot problems when sending via email

There are mainly two main problems when sending code by email.

The first one is that you have attached the source file. Please NEVER ATTACH your sourcecode, you must PLACE IT in the message BODY.

The second one is a known feature of some/most email clients: wrapping long lines. If you have used more than 70 characters per line, some email clients will break those lines into two or more. If that long line is for example

printf("This is a very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very long line\n");

then the output of your program in our judge would be something like:

This is a very very
very very very very
very very very very
very very very very
very very very very
very very very very
long line

Whis obviously is NOT what you wanted to submit!
