Re: Competition fuels obsession over Perl
in thread Competition fuels obsession over Perl
Heh. The last year I competed in the ACM, we had 4 students in the club, so there were two teams - three freshmen/sophomores on one and me (a third-semester senior) on the other. I placed 12th in my region. :-)
What really annoyed me was that this was after I'd learned Perl and I had to go back to using C++. ICK!
Of course, a few years before me, someone else from my school had his own scribe. He would write the problems out on paper and she would go type them in. (I think he solved 5 problems that year, 4 without errors.)
We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.
Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.
