OJ producing different answer than local machine

  • 0

    The below code produces output 1 for a tree with just the node -3. It produces -3 when as intended when I run it on my system or hand trace it. Kindly let me know what I am missing here

    # Definition for a  binary tree node
    # class TreeNode:
    #     def __init__(self, x):
    #         self.val = x
    #         self.left = None
    #         self.right = None
    class Solution:
        # @param root, a tree node
        # @return an integer
        maxsum = -2147483648
        def maxPathSum(self, root):
            return Solution.maxsum
        def findMax(self,current):
            if current == None:
                return 0
            left = self.findMax(current.left)
            right = self.findMax(current.right)
            Solution.maxsum = max(Solution.maxsum,left+right+current.val)
            ret = max(left,right) + current.val
            return ret if ret > 0 else 0

    I'm having the same problem in Java version. Basically, I have a static variable maxsum which is the same as in your code. I have no idea why it works on my Eclipse but gets wrong answer on OJ. Can someone help?
