Codeforces Beta Round #96 will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, and it will be my first classical Codeforces round. To smoothen the transition between Unknown Language and known ones, I've made the problems of the round follow a certain topic, which is of course programming languages :-)

Thanks to MikeMirzayanov, maksay и RAD for their help in preparing this round.

Good luck!

P.S. Points cost for problems: division 1 — 500-1500-1500-2000-2500, division 2 — 500-1000-1500-2500-2500.

 7 years ago, # |   +22 A beautiful day，a beautiful contest。
 7 years ago, # |   +2 Best of luck!
 7 years ago, # |   0 couldn't lock the problems, could lock only at > ~1:59:40
 7 years ago, # |   +15 I couldn't enter contest first 5 minutes, did anybody have the same problem? I see some submissions from 0:02, so it seems that not everybody had this problem.
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   +3 i had the same problem.
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 Same here.
•  7 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +3 Me too, about 3~4 minutes.
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 +1
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 Also 3-4 minutes to me
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 that also happend to me! :(
 7 years ago, # |   +3 Codeforces was extremely slow today. It was very tough for me to submit,to refresh standing pages, to see problems and to hack. I tried too hard to submit B quickly and ended up submitting same code twice(may be differed by \n or space) :( . Did anybody had the same problems?
 7 years ago, # |   0 Why is judgment taking so much ?
 7 years ago, # |   0 1% every five minutes?! Disappointing... :(
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   +3 No, its more than that.Lets watch a movie till then!
 7 years ago, # |   +1 Could anyone please give me modified sequence for Logo Turtle test #14 ?Given input is:TFFTFTTTFFTFTFTTTFFTTFFTFTFFTFFFFTTTTTFTFTFTTFFTTFTFFTTFTFFTTTTFFTFTTTFTTTTFFFFTFFTFFTFFFFTTTT2Correct result 19 (mine is 13)
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   +1 I've found my bug, dont't need an answer anymore
•  2 years ago, # ^ |   0 what was the bug? having same problem.
 7 years ago, # |   0 In problem C, there were no '\n' at the end of the sample input but in the test cases there were '\n' I lost many points because of this please see if you can give me points or if I'm wrongThanks alot in advance
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   +1 which of your submissions http://www.codeforces.ru/submissions/omarobeya depends on '\n' ?
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 924927 Thanks for replying
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 Yes, indeed when loopbreaking line modified to check if(ar[i] == 0 || ar[i] == '\n') your solution got AC. But admins hardly will rejudge coz problem statement contains "ASCII-code of each character of text will be between 32 (space) and 126 (tilde), inclusive.", so any char outside this range shold be treated as eoln
•  7 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   +1 There is surely a '\n' at the end of the sample input. Please see the source of the problem page:
Input
Hello, World!

is a line break.[EDIT] There was a mistake in the URL.[EDIT 2] I'm sorry, now the link must be correct.
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 I'm Div.2 not Div.1
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 use ((problem:133C)) (but replace round brackets to square) to get the link 133C - Turing Tape, look http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/2682
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 Thank you for your help. I didn't know there was such a nice feature!
 7 years ago, # |   0 Could anyone tell me why  925720 wrong at pretest 4 but 926234 not ?i just add a line of comment and it pass pretest !?
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   +6 You have some array overflow or similar. So the solution has random behavior. Here are two consecutive invocations of the first solution:Z:\Cop>1.exe < input.txt4Z:\Cop>1.exe < input.txt35
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 I see.so it's according to my bug in row and colum size.I didn't think of it although I just fixed this bug in practice session my bad :(. thank you very much.
 7 years ago, # |   +30 The statement of problem A and B is hard to understand...
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 Problem A: Hard to understand '+' operation. It is unused statement and ambiguous.....
 7 years ago, # |   +3 That was a good contest! Special thanks to codeforces! But please increase number of questions for later contests.
 7 years ago, # | ← Rev. 3 →   0 For division 1, A was really hard to understand, and I believe that I don't understand till now although I got Accepted. But for C and D, I really liked them :)Thanks for this nice contest!
•  7 years ago, # ^ |   0 I think that both A and B are hard for understanding.
 7 years ago, # |   0 Newbie here....!!!Could anyone plz tell me the difference between The Beta Round without any divisions and The Beta Round for separate divisions.Could i pariticipate in the former one even if my rating is 1270.and are any there editorials for that???Thanks in advance...
