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

Spelling mistake?

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"

string length

What about strings longer than 255?

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

This will not happen.
