  • For INOI you can use C, C++ or Java. You do not need to make a choice in advance, unlike ZCO. You will write the exam on a Linux system. The IDEs provided are Code::Blocks for C/C++ and Eclipse for Java. The C/C++ compilers are gcc 4.9.2, with support for C11/C++11 features (but not C++14). The Java version is Oracla Java 8. You can also use the online Codechef IDE.

  • You will get feedback from live testdata during INOI. However, we will re-evaluate all submissions after INOI, possibly with additional testcases, so scores recorded during INOI are not final. A live scoreboard will not be available during INOI.
