MikeMirzayanov's blog

Hello, Codeforces.

This is a short blog to introduce you recent updates in Testlib and Polygon.

Testlib

Generate a Permutation

Now, you can easily generate a permutation with codes like this:

Code Result
vector<int> p = rnd.perm(n); Generates 0-indexed permutation of size n
vector<int> p = rnd.perm(n, 1); Generates 1-indexed permutation of size n

Function println

Now, you can easily print space-separated lines in a generator. A println uses cout, thus prefer faster method if you print huge data.

Some examples:

Code Result
println(5); Print 5 and line break
println(1, 2, 3); Print 1 2 3 (three space separated integers) and line break
println("one", "more", 5.5); Print one more 5.5 (three space separated items) and line break
vector<int> a; ...; println(a); Print vector a (separate elements with spaces) and line break
vector<int> a; ...; println(a.begin(), a.end()); Exactly the same as above
string b[5]; ...; println(b, b + 5); Print array b (separate elements with spaces) and line break

Here is the example of a generator to print a permutation:

#include "testlib.h"

using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
    registerGen(argc, argv, 1);
    
    int n = atoi(argv[1]);
    println(n);
    println(rnd.perm(n, 1));
}

Function readInts and similar

Just as a reminder. Use functions readInts/readLongs/readStrictDoubles or readTokens/readLines in a validator to read and validate a sequence of values. To read a size of an array and array itself, use:

int n = inf.readInt(1, 200000, "n");
inf.readEoln();
inf.readInts(n, 1, 1000000, "a");
inf.readEoln();
inf.readEof();

Polygon

Example Problems

I've introduced three example problems. Each Polygon user has READ-access to them. Please, use them as examples how to write a problem in Polygon. They are:

  • example-a-plus-b: simple A+B problem
  • example-almost-upper-bound: simple problem to illustrate non-standard checker (always consider to use readAnswer function like in the example), generators and stress tests
  • example-interactive-binary-search: simple interactive problem on a binary search

Other Small Fixes

  • Allow to upload files (for example, images) as a contest property/file to use them in the statements.ftl. File names should start with 'statements-'.
  • API has been improved to support general description, general tutorial, tags, test groups and points.
  • Show problem ID on the summary box (on the righmost top block).
  • Replace UTF-8 typographic characters to their ASCII equivalent (for example, replace em dash — with ---).
  • Caching issue has been fixed. Previously, it could show RJ on tests even if the reason has been fixed.

Thanks to fcspartakm for implementing most features in Polygon.

I Use it with My Visual Studio ,I think it would be awesome if we could use it with codeforces (codeforces, Visual Studio)

I remember of D2T3 in NOI2018(National(China) Olympiad in Informatics) when I see the word "polygon"...

The problem still exists. I tested again, using your example-a-plus-b problem. I enabled tests points, set point for each test, submitted a WA solution and it scored the maximum point.

    try to activate the checkbox "enable groups" and then appoint the first group to the first test, the second group to the second test and so on.

Thanks for the platform Polygon and its updates. But I think there is some bug in the current version. I was creating a problem and uploaded some input files from my computer. When running the verification, the validator "wfval.exe" kept "expecting eoln" and "exiting with code 3" on a random line. I checked the line manually and found out that it was just a usual line in my input file... I have my own validator and it works fine. Why is there a werid "wfval.exe"...?

    Might it be due to different line ending characters?

    Please, take a look in PMs.

    Fixed now. You need to update testlib.h in a problem to fix it. The easiest way is to check and uncheck back an "Auto-update" checkbox.

      Thank you!! I updated testlib.h and my problem passed the verification just now.

MikeMirzayanov Is everything ok with the system? When I try to submit a solution on my own problem in a group, it gives a verdict "denial of judgement". In file included from check.cpp:1:0: testlib.h:2240:42: error: 'std::true_type' has not been declared static std::string vtos(const T& t, std::true_type)
