Description of how to read a number input from the keyboard and then put each of its components in an array
It reads a number from CMD [For example: 1234].
Then puts each of its components in an array - digitArray[3]=1, digitArray[2]=2, digitArray[1]=3, digitArray[0]=4 .


   //         one                ten              hundred              thousand
   //          1                  2                  3                    4
   //digitn=digitArray[3]*1 + digitArray[2]*10 +digitArray[1]*100 +digitArray[0]*1000

#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int digit=0,digitInput=0;
int digitArray[4]={0},digitn;
 *                               *
void getIntKey(void)
	   if (kbhit())
		   if ((digitInput>47) && (digitInput<59))
	                 digitArray[digit]=(unsigned char)digitInput-48;
		   if (digitInput==13)  { digitn=digitArray[0]; break; }
   if (digitInput!=13)  digitn=digitArray[3]*1+digitArray[2]*10+digitArray[1]*100+digitArray[0]*1000 ;
 *                               *
int main()
	system("color 1F");     //Blue background       
   printf("This program by TopCoder requires you to input 4 digits  \n ");
   printf("Input Digits  (ex. 1=0001 , 1234=1234)  \n ");
   printf("\nInput Digits    >");
   printf("\ndigitArray[3]=%d \n",digitArray[3]);
   printf("digitArray[2]=%d \n",digitArray[2]);
   printf("digitArray[1]=%d \n",digitArray[1]);
   printf("digitArray[0]=%d \n",digitArray[0]);


	return 0;

About me:
I attended programming college and I have a degree in three most famous and successful programming languages. C/C++, Visual Basic and Java. So i know i can code. And there is a diploma hanging on my wall to prove it.
I am a professional, I am paid tons of cash to teach or do software development. I am roughly 30 years old .
I hold lectures in programming. I have also coached students in C++, Java and Visual basic.
In my spare time i do enjoy developing computer games, and i am developing a rather simple flight simulator game
in the c++ programming language using the openGL graphics libray.

I've written hundreds of thousands of code syntax lines for small simple applications and games.

Reason for my vote of 2
It's a bit longwinded isn't it? The actual copy or transformation of the input could be done in one line.
Possibly not a bad solution for C (I don't program much in C anymore so I'm not highly qualified to say) but even then wouldn't you use atoi rather than hardcoding ASCI values everywhere?
