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.

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.

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?

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 wrong

Thanks alot in advance

    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.txt
    4
    Z:\Cop>1.exe < input.txt
    35

    Problem A: Hard to understand '+' operation. It is unused statement and ambiguous.....

That was a good contest! Special thanks to codeforces! But please increase number of questions for later contests.

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!

    I think that both A and B are hard for understanding.
