Raffi Tchoboian Wins the CC Code Challenge (Week 13)

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 Raffi Tchoboian of Vienne, Rhone-Alpes, France for winning the CC Weekly Code Challenge for Week 13! Raffi will receive a CC T-shirt and a hard copy of the CC25 Anniversary Issue.

Raffi’s correct answer was randomly selected from the pool of responses that correctly identified an error in the code. Raffi answered:

Line 16 : the position of the last char in the String s is length-1 so the correct line 16 is : “swap(&s[i], &s[length-i-1]);”
