Hi guys, I'm trying to implement Karatsuba multiplication in c++ using stl vectors. I have some problems with multiplication (addition and subtraction are ok, I've checked). I need to read data from the file, when the file looks like that:

3 // tells me how many pairs I have to multiply
3 // tells me how many digits is in every number
0 0 2
0 45 45 // first pair
1 1 1
2 2 2
// second pair
200 0 0
0 0 3 // last pair to multiply using Karatsuba ...

(text after "//" doesn't appear in my file, I wrote it only to explain what do the numbers exactly means)

Please, help me ! I'm going crazy, I don't know where I'm going wrong .. I've been trying to do this for 3 weeks and I just don't know what is wrong ... :(
Here's my code (and btw, sorry for my english :) )

``````#include<iostream>

And, as you can see it in my code, the base is 256, not as usually 10.
