# Reverse digits of an integer with overflow handled

Hello Everyone,

Write a program to reverse an integer assuming that the input is a 32-bit integer. If the reversed integer overflows, print -1 as the output.

`// A simple C program to reverse digits of`

`// an integer.`

`#include <stdio.h>`

`int` `reversDigits(` `int` `num)`

`{`

` ` `int` `rev_num = 0;`

` ` `while` `(num > 0)`

` ` `{`

` ` `rev_num = rev_num*10 + num%10;`

` ` `num = num/10;`

` ` `}`

` ` `return` `rev_num;`

`}`

` `

`/* Driver program to test reversDigits */`

`int` `main()`

`{`

` ` `int` `num = 5896;`

` ` `printf` `(` `"Reverse of no. is %d"` `, reversDigits(num));`

` ` `return` `0;`

`}`

Output:

6985

However, if the number is large such that the reverse overflows, the output is some garbage value. If we run the code above with input as any large number say 1000000045 , then the output is some garbage value like 1105032705 or any other garbage value.
How to handle overflow?
The idea is to store previous value of the sum can be stored in a variable which can be checked every time to see if the reverse overflowed or not.
Below is the implementation to deal with such a situation.

`// C++ program to reverse digits`

`// of a number`

`#include <bits/stdc++.h>`

`using` `namespace` `std;`

`/* Iterative function to reverse`

`digits of num*/`

`int` `reversDigits(` `int` `num)`

`{`

` ` `// Handling negative numbers`

` ` `bool` `negativeFlag = ` `false` `;`

` ` `if` `(num < 0)`

` ` `{`

` ` `negativeFlag = ` `true` `;`

` ` `num = -num ;`

` ` `}`

` ` `int` `prev_rev_num = 0, rev_num = 0;`

` ` `while` `(num != 0)`

` ` `{`

` ` `int` `curr_digit = num % 10;`

` ` `rev_num = (rev_num * 10) + curr_digit;`

` ` `// checking if the reverse overflowed or not.`

` ` `// The values of (rev_num - curr_digit)/10 and`

` ` `// prev_rev_num must be same if there was no`

` ` `// problem.`

` ` `if` `((rev_num - curr_digit) /`

` ` `10 != prev_rev_num)`

` ` `{`

` ` `cout << ` `"WARNING OVERFLOWED!!!"`

` ` `<< endl;`

` ` `return` `0;`

` ` `}`

` ` `prev_rev_num = rev_num;`

` ` `num = num / 10;`

` ` `}`

` ` `return` `(negativeFlag == ` `true` `) ?`

` ` `-rev_num : rev_num;`

`}`

`// Driver Code`

`int` `main()`

`{`

` ` `int` `num = 12345;`

` ` `cout << ` `"Reverse of no. is "`

` ` `<< reversDigits(num) << endl;`

` ` `num = 1000000045;`

` ` `cout << ` `"Reverse of no. is "`

` ` `<< reversDigits(num) << endl;`

` ` `return` `0;`

`}`

Output:

Reverse of no. is 54321
WARNING OVERFLOWED!!!
Reverse of no. is 0
