C++ Question

I am solving a c++ algorithmic problem and I don't know why I don't get a right answer. The problem consists in : there is given a row of n numbers. The you need to take each number and add the square of its digits till you get the sum 4 or 1. Then you need to print how many times you have added that number. His is an example: you have a row of 2 numbers: 89 and 68. You start with 89:
64 + 81 = 145;(1) 1 + 16 + 25 = 42;(2) 16 + 4 = 20;(3) 4 + 0 = 4;(4)
and we stop because it is 4. We need to print 4 because we added 4 times again and again till we got 4 or 1.The same with 68. My code is in c++ but it uses for files c.

``````#include<stdio.h>
#include<math.h>

FILE *f,*g;
int n,i,a[500],sqr,nr;
int main()
{
f = fopen("unupatru.in","r");
fscanf(f,"%d\n",&n);
for(i=1;i<=n;i++)fscanf(f,"%d",&a[i]);
fclose(f);
for(i=1;i<=n;i++)
{
nr=0;
sqr=0;
while(sqr!=4 || sqr !=1)
{
while(a[i])
{
sqr+=pow(a[i]%10,2);
a[i]/=10;
}
a[i]=sqr;
nr++;
}
g=fopen("unupatru.out", "w");
fprintf(g,"%d\n",nr);
fclose(g);
}
return 0;
}
``````

The problem with my code is that when I click on run and compile it doesn't stop running please help

Not sure is enough but...

You should put `sqr = 0` also inside the external while and (as pointed by Igor Tandetnik) modify the test using `&&` instead `||`

Or better: you shuold use `do`/`while` (with `sqr=0` only inside)

``````do
{
sqr=0;
while(a[i])
{
sqr+=pow(a[i]%10,2);
a[i]/=10;
}
a[i]=sqr;
nr++;
}
while(sqr!=4 && sqr !=1)
``````
