Rounding numbers

  • 20
  • Locked
Read 2 file names from the console. The first file contains real (fractional) numbers, separated by spaces. For example, 3.1415. Round the numbers to integers and write them, separated by spaces, to the second file. Close the streams. The rounding should work like this: 3.49 => 3 3.50 => 4 3.51 => 4

I had to have spent about six to seven hours on this task. The last three were just out of stubbornness and it feels really good to have gotten it. I recommend using their test values as it makes the last digit relevant (i.e. -3.51 rounds to -4 versus -3.5 rounds to -3). Took several hours of tweaking to realize I wasn't processing the VERY LAST DIGIT which, for my random test values, didn't make a difference, but for their test values, it did.

A few hours later... but finally. It was a little play with this one, but step after step is doable. 5 star from me too. Difficult level is accurate. Big lesson.

Not sure why this one was rated Hard. It isn't really asking us to do anything new that we haven't done before. I initially tried to make the code a little more concise by using Files.readAllBytes(Paths.get(string file_name)) but it requires you to use an InputStream. Good stuff. Only 738 completed this one? Fewer and fewer people are seeing this course through to the end the further I get into it. I am determined, I will finish everything.

Is CodeGym not using JDK11? I wanted to use the Files.readString() but I got the message that it can't verify it. Is it something to do with my settings?

I spent a lot of time figuring out why my program wasn't working. Remember closing the streams:

Something that helped me: It has to work if the last character of the read file IS NOT a SPACE.

Took me a while, tried with DataOutputStream but without succes and after seeing Alek commen with Buffered object, solved succesfully. A buffered Object is the key or at least it was for me. Good luck!

Spent a lot of time here, but I really liked this one. So meny things learned here, like writing to files complete strings with BufferedWriter instead of playing with ASCII byte by byte. :)
