This is a code from magician_man of 1455A - Strange Functions 100022199.

Notice that he used input[50] but not input[101].

I tried hack it but it did not get a RT.

How did it work?


using namespace std;

int main()
    int t,i;
    char input[50];
    cin >> t;
        cin >> input;
        cout << strlen(input) << endl;
    return 0;

From a week ago,my computer cannot show images in Codeforces rightly.

I tried to change a browser,but it did not work at all.

And I can only link to it normally by using a VPN.

It was too bad,and is there anyone having the problem same to me?

Thanks. :-)
