We often include emoticons in our text messages to indicate how we are feeling. The three consecutive characters :-) indicate a happy face and the three consecutive characters :-( indicate a sad face. Write a program to determine the overall mood of a message.

Input Specification

There will be one line of input that contains between 1 and 255 characters.

Output Specification

The output is determined by the following rules:

  • If the input line does not contain any happy or sad emoticons, output none.
  • Otherwise, if the input line contains an equal number of happy and sad emoticons, output unsure.
  • Otherwise, if the input line contains more happy than sad emoticons, output happy.
  • Otherwise, if the input line contains more sad than happy emoticons, output sad.

Sample Input 1

How are you :-) doing :-( today :-)?

Output for Sample Input 1

Sample Input 2

Output for Sample Input 2

none

Sample Input 3

    Well determine the tone of this! :-I

    This is not me being stupid and not reading the instructions, it's a bad attempt at humor

    I'm a bit unsure as to why my solution isn't working as intended. I've tried some of my personal test cases, and they work fine, but I can't seem to pass most of the test cases.

      cin >> input won't get the entire line, just until the first space. It's better to use getline(cin, input);

    I just spend 20 minutes trying to find any small error in my code despite this being a low difficulty question just to find that I wrote an output as "unhappy" instead of "sad"... fml :-(

    Why am I getting RTE (write syscall disallowed) on the first test case? Edit: Never mind, figured it out

    We often include emoticons in our text messages to indicate how we are feeling. The three con­ secutive characters :-) indicate a happy face and the three consecutive characters :-( indicate a sad face. Write a program to determine the overall mood of a message.

    "Consecutive" in the first line is misspelled as "con secutive"

      This will not happen.
