Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / swetcha

Overloading - Two functions having same name and return
type, but with different type and/or number of arguments.
Overriding - When a function of base class is re-defined in
the derived class.

Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / janet

1. In overloading,there is a relation ship between methods
available in the same class where as in overridding,there
is relationship between a super class method and subclass
method.
2. overloading doesn't block inheritence from the
superclass where as overridding blocks inheritence.

3. in overloading,seperate methods share the same name
where as in overridding,subclass methods replaces the
superclass.

4.overloading must have different method signatures where
as overriding must have same signature.

Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / shivanand

The main difference between overloading and overriding is
that in overloading we can use same function name with
different parameters for multiple times for different tasks
with on a class.
and overriding means we can use same name fiunction name
with same parameters of the base class in the derived class.
this is also called as reusability of code in the programme.

Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / gaurav rawat

* in overloading function name are same but signatures
(argument) are different .
while in overriding function name are as well as argument
are same in drive class as in super class.
* for overloading can be done in one class but
for overriding there is necessary that at least two class
should be present.

Answer / meenu kathuria

different class.

Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / adeel shahid

overriding is done in the base class where the parent class
method is overridden by a method of the same signature.

Overloading is done in the same class on functions with
input parameters differing in number or type.

Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / n.balasutha

It does not block superclass method it will override the
super class method

Difference between Overloading and Overriding?..

Answer / mansi shah

Overloading is evaluaated at compile time whereas
Overriding is evaluated at Run Time.

Overloading method has different Parameters but same name
whereas Overriding is just the implementation of method
define din Base Class.

Overloading does not interfere Base Class whereas
Overriding method must require the method which is declared
in Base Class.

Overloading can be defined in one class,in short term it
does not require separate Base Class to implement the
method,whereas for implementing method overriding the Base
class is necessary..

Board Coloring Problem Description In this problem you are given a board in which some of the elements are placed as shown in diagram below. Each element represents a color. Fill the other elements in the board, such that none of the adjacent elements (vertically, horizontally and diagonally) should be of the same color. Find out the minimum number of colors that should be used to fill the blank spaces in the board, so that the above condition is met. Color representation is -: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7……………………. There is sample board: For Example: Given Board : Matrix representation of board is : [ _ 1 _ _ ] [ 2 _ _ _ ] [ _ _ 2 _ ] [ 2 _ _ _ ] here blank space is represented by '_' . Minimum colors to fill this board (given in the picture)is 4. Instruction to work with Open PBT Client: Specify the work directory path in the 'Work directory Path' field. The path should correspond to your solution Work directory. Download the support files by clicking the Get Dev Files. You will find the problem directories containing: problem.h file problem.c file in your project directory. Code the solution in.c file inside the problem directory All required files will be downloaded to your work directory. Creating additional files is strongly discouraged. Step 1: In your Solution File: Implement your logic in function int color(char board[4][4]) char board[4][4]board is 2 dimensional matrix of order M X M where M = 4. You can create more functions if required, but those functions should be in the same file. Step 2: In your solution keep in mind the following constraints. In this problem you have to write a program that finds the minimum number of colors needed to fill a board in which some of the elements are placed in advance. Function color() will take 2 dimension board as a input. Function color() returns the minimum number of colors that could fill the board meeting the given condition. Board is a 2 dimensional of M X M where M = 4 else return 0 Fill the other elements in the board, such that none of the adjacent elements (vertically, horizontally and diagonally) should be of the same color. The Prototype of the function is int color(char board[4][4]) This function takes following arguments. board is 2 dimensional matrix of order M X M where M = 4. This function returns minimum no of color by which board can be filled. The constraints are: Board is a 2 dimensional of M X M where M = 4 else return 0 Fill the other elements in the board, such that none of the adjacent elements (vertically, horizontally and diagonally) should be of the same color. Example 1 Input { 2 0 _ 1 } { _ 1 _ _ } { _ 2 _ 0 } { _ _ _ 1 } Output 5 Explanation: We need a minimum 5 different colors to complete the board. Example 2 Input { 2 0 _ 1 3} { _ 1 _ _ 2} { _ 2 _ 0 1} { _ _ _ 1 2} { _ _ _ _ 0} Output 0 Explanation: Size of the board is greater than 4X4. Example 3 Input { _ 0 } { 1 _ } Output 0 Explanation: Size of the board is less than 4X4. For C solutions Header File : boardcoloring.h Function Name : int color(char board1[4][4]) File Name : boardcoloring.c For C++ solutions Header File : boardcoloring.h Class Name : BoardColoring Function Name : int color(char board1[4][4]) File Name : boardcoloring.c
