Can anyone give me a code regarding this. If I give input as 05 I should get the same (05)output but not just 5

output should be like
input: 05
output: 05

not like this
input: 05
output: 5

Thanks in advance

You don't say whether you are using C or C++.

For C++, research cout.fill().

... and for C look at the "%02d" format string.

Thank you very much...Now I am getting the output...but not the required one..
In a same input if at all I need to give values like 05, 005, 5, 0005 now if I am giving "%02d" then the output I got is 05, 05, 5, 05.
So I changed to "%03d" and now I am getting 005, 005, 5, 005 but not as same as the input values.
I need the output to be as same as input because I am using lots of data(11350)at a time which has any of the above values
Sorry for not mentioning the Language...I am writing program in C lang....

If any number of zeros can be prepended to your number(s) then a simple "%02d"
format string won't help you. Better leave the input as strings (char*) and copy
them verbatim to the output.
