### Re: 454 Anagrams WA

But you're printing a newline after each case - including the last one.
True. But sometimes we get away with it and get AC and at other times it gives WA instead of PE which can be frustating. I realized there are two ways this is mentioned in the problems.

1. Print a new line between every testcase or two consecutive test cases. This is the one mentioned by you.
2. Print a new line after every test case. For these ones we need a blank line after last test case as well.

Need to very careful as these don't give presentation errors.

### Re: 454 Anagrams WA

After 3 attempts and 1 rewrite, my program still get WA. Help me please.

Code: Select all

``````#include <algorithm>
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <cctype>
using namespace std;

struct word{
string wrd;
string stripped;
void strip() {
stripped = "";
for (int i = 0; i < wrd.length(); ++i) {
if (isspace((int)wrd[i])) continue;
stripped += wrd[i];
}
sort(stripped.begin(), stripped.end());
}
};

int n;
word words[101];

bool cmp (word a, word b) {
if (a.stripped.compare(b.stripped) < 0) return true;
if (a.stripped.compare(b.stripped) == 0) {
if (a.wrd.compare(b.wrd) <= 0) return true;
}
return false;
}

int main() {
cin >> n;
cin.ignore(256,'\n');
cin.ignore(256,'\n');

while (n--) {
int i = 0;
while (getline(cin, words[i].wrd) && words[i].wrd[0] != '\n' && words[i].wrd[0] != NULL) {
words[i++].strip();
//cout << words[i - 1].wrd << endl;
}
sort(words, words + i, cmp);
for (int j = 0; j < i; ++j) {
for (int k = j + 1; k < i; ++k) {
if (words[j].stripped.compare(words[k].stripped) == 0) {
cout << words[j].wrd << " = " << words[k].wrd << endl;
} else break;
}
}
if (n) cout << endl;

}

return 0;
}

This thread has some excellent test cases. Have you tried running your program on those to see if it produces the right output? That might be a good place to start.

### Re: 454 Anagrams WA

I spotted my mistake after analyzing several test cases. The reason is that I was grouping together anagrams which is not correct.

Sometimes it helps to have a process that you follow for every problem. I used this problem as an example in a post I wrote about a process for programming puzzle solving: http://www.redgreencode.com/how-to-atta ... ng-puzzle/

It includes some pseudocode for UVa 454 if you're having trouble with it.
