What would happen when the code is run?

a) As originally written?
b) With the first bug fixed?


1: unsigned long normalise(unsigned long input_time)
2: {
3:
4: bool finished;
5:
6: // This produces a formatted time string like:
7: // Thu_Nov_24_18:22:48_1986
8: string str_time = format_time( input_time );
9:
10: while( str_time.substr(1,3) != "Sun")
11: {
12: input_time -= 24*60*60;
13: str_time = format_time( input_time );
14: }
15:
16: while( str_time.substr(11,2) != "00" )
17: {
18: input_time -= 60*60;
19: str_time = format_time( input_time );
20: }
21:
22: while( str_time.substr(14,2) != "00")
23: {
24: str_time = format_time( input_time );
25: input_time -= 60;
26: }
27:
28: while( str_time.substr(17,2) != "00")
29: {
30: input_time -= 1;
31: str_time = format_time( input_time );
32: }
33:
34: return input_time;
35: }

If the code you posted contains errors then nothing will happen because the compiler will not generate an executable program. The ocmpiler generates the final executable program only when you have fixed all errors.
