### C++ code

Hi,
can you convert to livecode these few lines of C++?
I have no idea what they really do, but they works for a task...

Code: Select all

``````#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <array>
#define repeat(i,n) for (int i = 0; (i) < (n); ++(i))
#define repeat_from(i,m,n) for (int i = (m); (i) < (n); ++(i))
using namespace std;
void solve() {
int n; cin >> n;
array<string,2> s; cin >> s[0] >> s[1];
s[0] = "X" + s[0] + "X";
s[1] = "X" + s[1] + "X";
int ans = 0;
repeat (y,2) {
for (int l = 1; l <= n; ++l) {
if (s[y][l] == 'X') continue;
int r = l+1;
while (s[y][r] != 'X') ++ r;
if (r-l == 1) continue;
repeat_from (x,l,r) {
if (s[(y+1)%2][x-1] == 'X' and s[(y+1)%2][x] == '.' and s[(y+1)%2][x+1] == 'X') {
s[(y+1)%2][x] = 'X';
break;
}
}
repeat_from (x,l,r) s[y][x] = 'X';
ans += 1;
l = r;
}
}
repeat_from (x,1,n+1) {
if (s[0][x] == '.' or s[1][x] == '.') {
ans += 1;
}
}
cout << ans << endl;
}
int main() {
int testcases; cin >> testcases;
repeat (testcase, testcases) {
cout << "Case #" << testcase+1 << ": ";
solve();
}
return 0;
}``````

No I cannot, because I've spent the last 14 years learning LiveCode just so I don't have to learn C++

### Re: C++ code

I'll try to explain easily, it solves a "minimum required ..." task.
It takes an input like:

Code: Select all

``````.....X.
.X.....``````
and found how chess tower (or rook) are required to cover all dots, X are walls.
Example solution is 2, because just 2 chess towers can see all dots:

Code: Select all

``````T....X.
.X....T``````
This C++ code can solve 307 cases with solution greater than 410 in few seconds, but I can't really understand how it works.
This is how a rook see:

### Re: C++ code

Ok I converted the C++ solve() function in Livecode, I missed the ">>" meaning in C++
Now I have to study why it works... (edited the 12/Jan/2016)

########CODE to copy and paste#######
function solve testo
put the number of chars of line 1 of testo into n
put line 1 of testo into s[0] #for example ".....X."
put line 2 of testo into s[1] #for example ".X....."
put "X" & s[0] & "X" into s[0] #it becames "X.....X.X"
put "X" & s[1] & "X" into s[1] #it becames "X.X.....X"
put 0 into ans
repeat with y=0 to 1
repeat with l=1 to n
if char l of s[y] is "x" then next repeat
put l + 1 into r
repeat while char r of s[y] is not "X"
end repeat
if (r - l ) is 1 then next repeat
repeat with x=l to (r - 1)
if ( char (x-1) of s[(y + 1) mod 2] is "X" ) AND (char x of s[(y+1) mod 2] is ".") AND ( char (x + 1) of s[(y +1) mod 2] is "X") then
put "X" into char x of s[(y + 1) mod 2]
exit repeat
end if
end repeat
repeat with x=l to (r - 1)
put "X" into char x of s[y]
end repeat
put r into l
end repeat #end of l=1 to n
end repeat #end of y=0 to 1
repeat with x=1 to n
if (char x of s[0] is "." ) OR (char x of s[1] is "." ) then add 1 to ans
end repeat
return ans
end solve

Just to give you a picture, this input:

Code: Select all

``````....X..........XX..XX..X..............................X..X..X...X...............X.X..X.......X.........X.......X.......XX..XX.........X....X......X...X....XX......X.....X.X....................X...X....X..X...X.........XX..........X.....X.......X.X...............X...X.X.X.X..XX.....X.........XX............X....X......X..XX...XX.X..X...........X.X........X..X......X............XX.X........XX......XX...XX............X..X......X.X......X....X...XXX.XXXX.X...X.........X.....XX...X......XXXXXX....X......X..........X.X.X.XX.X..X.........X.....X..X.XX.X..........XXXX.................X...X..X.XXX............X.XX..X..X....X...X.....................X..XX..........X.XX.....XX...X.....X...XX.X..XX.X.........X.X..X...XX..X............X.....X....X.......X.....X..XX.....X........X............X...X..X.XX.....XX...

it has solution 222 towers (rooks).
