# Python beats 65% solution

• In the question, it is mentioned that it is vague and we need to make all the possible input cases and expected solutions. Before going into solution, try to figure out outcomes of these test cases :

• " +10 "
• "+0"
• "-1"
• "1213131313131"
• " +001313"
• " +a"
• " -12a12"

Solution:

`````` class Solution(object):
def myAtoi(self, str):
"""
:type str: str
:rtype: int
"""

if len(str) == 0 :
return 0

# flags
ans = 0
number_started = False
sign = 1
signflag = False

# for each character in input stirng
for i in str :
# if character is empty space, and the number is not started then continue else break(we got the number)
if i == ' ':
if number_started == False:
continue
else:
break

# if character is a sign and the number is not yet started then save the sign
elif (i=='-' or i=='+') and number_started == False and signflag == False:
sign = -1 if i=='-' else 1
signflag = True
number_started = True

# if the character is a number in between 0 to 9 then add it to answer at units digits by shifting  already available digits in ans to left
elif ord(i) >= 48 and ord(i) <= 57 :
number_started = True
ans = (ans * 10) +  (ord(i) - ord('0'))

# if none of above conditions satisfy then break out of loop.
else:
break

# check for integer overflow
if ans >= 2**31 :
ans = 2**31
if sign == 1:
return ans - 1
else :
return  sign * ans

return sign * ans``````
