I think you're expecting too much from this mystery course/teacher/assignment

You misrepresent my words; I "expect" nothing. If the course/teacher/assignment falls short, I'm with Mark Twain on this one: "I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."

This logic applies equally well after graduation: Regardless of how good or bad the spec is, write the best solution you can within the time allotted that still meets the requirements. In an academic context, you'll learn far more, and in a professional context, you'll likely receive far fewer bug reports.

    You misrepresent my words; I "expect" nothing....

    But you said

    I sincerely hope that you would not receive full marks for such a solution. translation, I hope you don't get an A (or a 5)

    Where is the misrepresentation?

    mark twain, true learning

    Yeah, that's nice in theory

      Yeah, that's nice in theory

      I'm glad we could agree on something.
