I'm unable to understand what r u trying to do with your code....

Firstly, could you please tell me what do you mean when you write

int main()
getline ()
return 0;

If you are able to reply me correctly, I'm sure you will fix that problem yourself...

Remove the getline between main and the first bracket.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. int main()
  2. {
  3. ...
  4. }
  8. int main()
  10. getline()
  11. {
  12. ...
  13. }

Hello All! I'am novice in python, and I find one very bad thing (from my point of view) in language. There is no keyword or syntax to declare variable, like 'var' in Pascal, or special syntax in C. It can cause very ugly errors,like this: epsilon=0 S=0 while epsilon<10: S=S+epsilon
