I'm trying to hack, but when I click on an run ID, no window pops up... is there some other way to see others' code?

    I even tried going manually to the URL http://codeforces.com/contest/57/challenge/<RUN ID>, and no code shows up or anything. I've definitely locked the problems I'm trying to hack...

Is there a way to go out of the competion? I tried to solve one problem, but then my ant came and now I only have 20 minutes left, I think my rating will fall down like an exponential function :(.

      My thoughts exactly. I would understand the distraction if it was a mosquito, or maybe a wasp... but I think you could distract an ant with a few bits of sugar and deal with it later.

Is there a way to see what hacked my code?
MY problem C was hacked, but the same code passed the system test after the competition.

          Sorry.
          I didn't get the hack data which was actually used to hack my code.
          I found only what kind of test case hacked my code by viewing my code with cmd's advice.
          I don't know how to get the hack data.

          negative numbers.
          ans = (2*ans - n)%mod

          in my case, victim wrote
          if (ans<0) ans+=n;
          instead of
          ans+=mod;

      I got 3 hacks with this case. One of them was lucky and hadn't close his submissions yet and could correct it.

    It is impossible to consider all probable bugs. We are working on automatic adding of all the hacks in the final tests. It will be introduced soon.

      I know that CodeForces has already hosted many contests in this format but
      I would like to give a suggestion to change a little bit the hacking system.

      I think it's pretty unfair that someone gets the lucky of having his solution hacked and get a chance to resubmit while others don't. Taking it to the extrem it can even be seen as working in teams.

      But, I also thing that it's nice this hacking phase during the programming phase and also the locking feature is important to allow resubmissions if someone noticed a mistake in his own solution before seeing others.

      So, my suggestion is to don't tell the contestant that his solution has been hacked until he locks it.  He can still resubmit but he needs to recheck the code and find his mistake without other people helping him.

        I give you my opinion.

        Today's hack system looks for me as in real life: if someone noticed bug, he will say about it to the author. Or he will wait till the bughaver released his software with this bug, and only after that he says "I saw a bug in your program but didn't tell :p!"? Looks strange if this is a situation in one company, community, like CodeForces are. :-) Yes, you're right, it's a teamwork. :-)

      memset is fill bites, not sell of bites. 

      int a[10]; memset(a,1,sizeof(a)); 

      give a[0]=...=a[9] = 00000001 00000001 00000001 00000001 = 16843009

          long long int *v; 
          sizeof(v) is equal to size of pointer to long long int
          you need write memset(v,0,sizeof(v[0]) * n); 
          instead of
          memset(v,0,sizeof(v));

The problem statement for B is maybe a little bit hard to understand. It took several minutes for me to completely catch what the problem asked. I think it should've been worded better.

    Right. The English version was really troublesome and confusing. I don't know about the russian version but if it was not that the problem was make difficult to understand, then the problem-setters should be more careful.

      The Russian version seemed hard to understand to me as well. I probably spent more time reading the statement rather than coding the solution.
