For a programming exercise in one of my C/C++ classes we had to write a program that would translate from English to Pig Latin:
The rules for this translation are as follows:
a) For any word starting with one or more consonants, move the starting consonants to the end of the word and append ay
b) for any word starting with a vowel simply append way
c) any other characters can be ignored and all letters can be assumed to be lowercase
I'm curious to see just how little code someone can do this in.
this is the time for all good me no
come to the aid of their country.
isthay isway ethay imetay orfay allway oodgay enmay otay
omecay otay ethay aidway ofway eirthay ountrycay
In reply to Pig Latin
