Problem with Go online judge configurations?

Hello @ all and in particular to the admins,

This question has been bugging me for a while, and a previous post I made might have been unclear… So, now, I’ll use a concrete example to ask my question once again…

I have recently started learning the Go programming language (read more [here][1] ) and I decided that a great place to develop my skills at it would be using the Codechef problems :smiley:

However, I have reasons to believe that the judge might still have bugs… I have been getting some very strange Runtime errors on almost all problems I’ve attempted to solve on the easy practice section… And now I decided to test my theory by solving the easiest possible problem from the Peer section:

This was my accepted C++ solution:

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
int N;
scanf("%d", &N);
for(int a = 0; a < N; a++)
int elem;
scanf("%d", &elem);
if(elem >= 0)
printf("%d \n", elem);
printf("%d \n", elem*(-1));
return 0;

And this is my direct Go translation of it:

package main

import "fmt"

func main(){
var N int
var x int
fmt.Scanf("%d", &N)
for i := 0; i < N; i+=1{
fmt.Scanf("%d", &x)
if x >= 0{

If anyone could explain me how to get Accepted in Go, I would be very, very grateful!!

Thank you in advance,

My story is very similar to your. I’m learning golang too.
My solution for this problem is very close to your. There are two differences. I use fmt.Scan method to obtain data. And -x expression to inverse sign. It was accepted.
