Hello all, I had one query. When you append an int to a string, doesn't the variable get assigned a string. For instance I am having a hard time with the following code.



I am using bit shifting, my output looks great for this program; I have to implement, however, when I try to count how many 0s and 1s it get way off a way off answer. Is there something I am missing?
The out put is the following.



I am basically looking on get the following numbers 26 5 4 which correspond to the following: total # of 1 bits, longest 1 bit sequence, longest 0 bit sequence. Thus, the answer should be 26 5 4. I have tried many different ways to implement this and I keep on gettting the same end result. Am I missing the big picture? Please correct me if I am wrong. You enter a key on the keyboard, which corresponds to a ascii code, which then corresponds to a bit pattern, which the computer really works with. I know java uses unicode(could this have something to do with why I am getting this kind of result). Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks

Hi,

If i am understanding you correctly this might be the case.

If i am looking at your loop where you count i get the impression you are doing this:
When i add 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ... + 26 i get 351 does that suggest where you might have got it wrong?



good luck

Hi, I don't understand what you are saying. I am incrementing by 1 if a 1 is found in the string and incrementing by 1 if a zero character is fount. I am also keeping track of the total 1s in the string. I think my logic is correct here. If not please point out where I am missing out. Thanks

Edit: you posted your answer while i was writing this.
good luck

Hi i'll try to say it in another way.

You try to add 1 to countTotalOne by doing the following: countTotalOne+=countOne
if you change that to adding 1 to CountTotalOne instead of the valy of o you get 26 instead of 351 as output.

As i said, look at the counters in your loop and what value you are actualy storing in your counters.

With a change to the abovementioned line i get this output

de ad be ef 42
1101111010101101101111101110111101000010
Total: 40
26 26 14

Now the first number is correct.
The other 2 numbers (26 14) suggest that you do not reset your counters for longest #1 sequence and longest #0 sequence.
You are at the moment counting all ones and zeroes that are in your string.
try to reset your 1 and 0 counter the moment you find a longer string then the one you have found before.

Good Luck.

I saw the topic "an int and a string" and was really hoping for "walked into a bar..." Guess I'll wander down to MD.
