# Numeric palindromes-code needed

Howdy, anyone got some code to solve a numeric palindrome in C? Help would be appreciated.

• Hi.

The easiest method which I can think of would be to convert the number to a string and then compare the indeces into the array.
Here is a piece of code that I have put together which seems to work.

[code]
#include
#include

int main()
{
int iPalin = 12344545;
char lpszString[256];

//Convert the int to a string
sprintf( lpszString, "%d", iPalin );

//Get the length of the string
int iLength = strlen( lpszString ) - 1;

//Compare positions
for( int iLoop = 0; iLoop <= iLength / 2; iLoop++ )
{
if( lpszString[iLoop] != lpszString[iLength-iLoop] )
{
cout<<"The number "<<iPalin<<" is not a Palindrome"<<endl;
cout<<lpszString[iLoop]<<" does not match "<<lpszString[iLength-iLoop]<<endl;
return 0;
}
}

cout<<"The number "<<iPalin<<" is a Palindrome"<<endl;

return 0;
}
[/code]

It would also be possible to do it by using % and getting the individual values of the numberic value, but that gets complicated, and above is by far the easiest way.

:Hello, thanks a bunch, this will really help. The C language itself is not difficult to understand but my teacher is hitting us with tough logic problems and is also dropping structured-programming on us like a bomb. Anyhow, thanks again.
