We have a winner of last week’s CC Weekly Code Challenge, sponsored by IAR Systems! We posted a code snippet with an error and challenged the engineering community to find the mistake!
Congratulations to Alex Ivopol of Wellington, New Zealand for winning the CC Weekly Code Challenge for Week 7! He’ll receive an IAR Kickstart KSK-TMPM061-JL kit.
Alex’s correct answer was randomly selected from the pool of responses that correctly identified an error in the code. Alex answered:
Line 16: the double ampersand is a logical operator that returns true as long as k is non zero. The intended operator here is a single ampersand which is a bitwise operator used to test the least significant bit of k

What is the CC Weekly Code Challenge?
Each week, Circuit Cellar’s technical editors purposely insert an error in a snippet of code. It could be a semantic error, a syntax error, a design error, a spelling error, or another bug the editors slip in. You are challenged to find the error.Once the submission deadline passes, Circuit Cellar will randomly select one winner from the group of respondents who submit the correct answer.
Inspired? Want to try this week’s challenge? Get started!
Submission Deadline: The deadline for each week’s challenge is Sunday, 12 PM EST. Refer to the Rules, Terms & Conditions for information about eligibility and prizes.
