But they could have made it useful by adding pluses!

#define ONE     +1
#define TWENTY  +20
#define HUNDRED +100
 
// Here's a little example
#include <iostream>
 
int main()
{
    int x = ONE;
    std::cout << x << std::endl;
 
    x = ONE HUNDRED;
    std::cout << x << std::endl;
 
    x = ONE HUNDRED TWENTY;
    std::cout << x << std::endl;
 
    x = ONE HUNDRED TWENTY ONE;
    std::cout << x << std::endl;
}

 

Or even worse:

 
#define ONE     +0x001
#define TWENTY  +0x020
#define HUNDRED +0x100

 

Sadly this doesn't fully work: 

 

 

TWO HUNDRED == 102

But don't worry - we can fix it! We just need to be "clever"...

 

 

#define AND +0
#define ONE +1
#define TWO +2
#define TWENTY +20
#define HUNDRED *100
 
// Here's a little example
#include <iostream>
 
int main()
{
    int x = TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY ONE;
    std::cout << x << std::endl;
    // prints 221
}

 

This way you even get to write grammatically correct numbers. happy.png
