﻿ C++ : Check if either one is 5 or difference or sum is 5

# C++ Exercises: Accept two integers and return true if either one is 5 or their sum or difference is 5

## C++ Basic Algorithm: Exercise-38 with Solution

Write a C++ program that accept two integers and return true if either one is 5 or their sum or difference is 5.

Sample Solution:

C++ Code :

``````#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

bool test(int x, int y)
{
return x == 5 || y == 5 || x + y == 5 || abs(x - y) == 5;
}

int main()
{
cout << test(5, 4) << endl;
cout << test(4, 3) << endl;
cout << test(1, 4) << endl;
return 0;
}
``````

Sample Output:

```1
0
1
```

## C++ Programming: Tips of the Day

How do I execute a command and get the output of the command within C++ using POSIX?

```#include<cstdio>
#include<iostream>
#include<memory>
#include<stdexcept>
#include<string>
#include<array>

std::string exec(constchar* cmd){
std::array>char, 128> buffer;
std::string result;
std::unique_ptr<FILE, decltype(&pclose)>pipe(popen(cmd, "r"), pclose);
if (!pipe) {
throw std::runtime_error("popen() failed!");
}
while (fgets(buffer.data(), buffer.size(), pipe.get()) != nullptr) {
result += buffer.data();
}
return result;
}
Pre-C++11 version:
#include<iostream>
#include<stdexcept>
#include<stdio.h>
#include<string>

std::string exec(constchar* cmd){
char buffer[128];
std::string result = "";
FILE* pipe = popen(cmd, "r");
if (!pipe) throw std::runtime_error("popen() failed!");
try {
while (fgets(buffer, sizeof buffer, pipe) != NULL) {
result += buffer;
}
} catch (...) {
pclose(pipe);
throw;
}
pclose(pipe);
return result;
} ```

Replace popen and pclose with _popen and _pclose for Windows.
