Hi dude,

Your while loop will never gets end because n variable will always remains greater than zero until it overflows.

Replace your while loop with the following one:

// store number in a temporary variable,
// or you can use number variable directly.
int temp = number;
// for negative numbers:
if (temp < 0) temp *=-1;

while (temp)
cout << (temp % 10) << " ";
temp /= 10;

// First calculate number of digits:
int digitsNum = 0;
int temp = number;
if (temp < 0) temp *=-1;
for (; temp; temp/=10, digitsNum++);

// after that...
int *list = new int[digitsNum];
temp = number;
if (temp < 0) temp *=-1;

// Store digits in the list
for (int i=0; temp; i++, temp /= 10)
*(list + i) = (temp % 10);

// At last, print it at reverse side
for (int i=digitsNum - 1; i >= 0; i--)
cout << list[i] << " ";

good luck...

    Your code could be much simpler if you input the number as a string and manipulated the characters rather than dealt with an int. For one thing, you wouldn't have a problem with numbers that exceed the range of an int (often -32767 to +32768 or so).

    As a footnote to that, since you do have to do some numerical manipulation, note that any ASCII digit can be converted to its integer value simply by subtracting the character '0' from it.

    Hope that helps.
