  1. Dear Sir ,
    Is there any procedure to use STL (vector,string,set,map) of c++ in coding arena of code vita as in practice round the compiler is showing compile time error due to these STL...

  2. I think STL is not part of standard c++... Have a look on stackoverflow post at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6314830/is-stl-a-part-of-core-of-c

    1. Whether it is a part of standard C++ is irrelevant, the fact that g++ compiler allows STL, and TCS would be using g++, should allow contestants to use STL.

Alternatively, log on to nextstep.tcs.com and after that just open this url ( https://preoffer.cc.tcs.com/contests/team_formation/codevita-2013-the-tcs-coding-contest ) in new tab. You will have your secret code on right side of this page. Still getting problem, leave another comment below, I will give you more alternatives... :D

  10. Thank you sir that was of real help finally my program did run. I have one more confusion regarding this contest. During the subsequent rounds both the members will login with their respective CT no and other details. So will different sets of questions be supplied to the team members or the same set of questions for both? If the questions are same and when we are able to solve a particular problem will both the team members upload the same answer or anyone will do?
    It will be really kind of you if you help me in sorting out this problem

    1. I think there will be same set of questions
      for both of you. Both members should login
      and submit solutions. Anyone can submit
      solution of a particular problem. So don't
      waste your time in submitting same solution
      twice.

  17. Is this a joke contest? No feedback for submissions, how one would know if they made correct submission or not?
    No clear constraints : like in Fun Numbers - what are limits on x,y, and n and still you think that would get correct conditions for invalid input : seriously the contest is screwed up.

    1. @Amit This blog is just for the information purpose
      and I am not a team member of CodeVita 2013 organi-
      zing committee. I know there are certain mistakes
      in "Fun Numbers" as well as in "Brokerage" problems.
      Drop a mail to TCS regarding this. And try your best
      to reach out to solution. Due to heavy traffic on
      server, submission details might appear a little bit
      later.

  24. Please help! :'( I have successfully created account, while forming a team, I accidentally selected wrong person's name. There's only slight difference between the stranger's name (who I accidentally selected) and my friend (who I want as my team member). The thing is, I have sent the invitation to the stranger. Is there any way I can form a team again? If that's impossible, can I delete my current account and create a new one? Is there any possibility? Pretty please help!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can ask your friend to form team and send a request to you and accept the invitation. Otherwise if the other person accepts your invitation then you won't be able to change team and require to create a new account.

      Hope this solves your problem.

  25. Does codevita platform supports dev c++ for coding in c?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There is no problem as long as your compiler uses gcc. Since Dev C++ internally uses gcc, so technically there is no problem.

  26. Will all the teams get same set of questions in round1 of codevita 2014??

    Replies
    1. Last year, teams who logged in around same time got same set of questions and teams who logged in in different time frame got different questions. They might follow the trend this year also but exact details will be revealed on contest day only.
