Perhaps the rules should have been clarified to state, as Ton says, that golfers are expected to research and learn from prior art and that it is not cheating to do so.

Indeed. It would have saved me from bothering with the contest at all.

    [marioroy]: Thank you Lady_Aleena. I've bookmarked the page.
    [1nickt]: folks, would you say that 1.0 is an integer ?
    [Lady_Aleena]: 1nickt, I wouldn't, but I'm not normal.
    LanX aggrees, LA isn't normal ;-P
    [Lady_Aleena]: LanX, thanks bunches.
    [Lady_Aleena]: Rigth now I'm ranting in my head about an old subject.
    [1nickt]: Hm, that is, how to prevent Perl from turning 1.0 into 1? I feel sure this must be an faq, but am reading perlnum and not finding the answer ...
    [Lady_Aleena]: 1nickt, why does it matter in this case?
    [1nickt]: Hm, perhaps this? "Operators which expect an integer force the argument into the integer format."
