The definition of pow( ) takes doubles for both arguments. Try it with double arguments and double result. Might also have rounding issues with the answer, e.g. 14.9999999... being truncated to 24. John

Hi, there,

I spent several hours and still get pow(5,2)=24 at the last line of

Environment:
Windows XP
gcc.exe (GCC) 3.4.2 (mingw-special)

compile command:

int *p;//point to the full tree

s = (int)pow(L,D); // wrong here, when L=5 D=2, I got 24!!!
