3rd JUNIOR BALKAN OLYMPIAD IN INFORMATICS
(JBOI 2009)
November 27 – 29, 2009
Shumen, Bulgaria
Before sport contest event all participants are lined up, each one is turned left or right.
Simultaneously, all participants in the row who at present are facing each other shake hands
and then turn around to face the participant on their other side. The time for one handshake
and a turn is 1 second. The rest of the players keep their orientation. Then follow new
handshakes and turnings, etc.
The event will begin when the handshakes end. If they finish at all.
Input
From the standard input is read a string of letters L and R, where L means a player, turned to
the left at the starting moment, while R means a player turned to the right. The length of the
sting is 100000 at max.
Output
At the standard output to be brought out divided by space: the time for the handshakes and all
handshakes made by the players. If the handshakes never cease then to be brought out
NEVEREND.

Could you provide an example of what this looks like with a small number of players? I'm not clear on what's happening.
