True, however, I wasn't convinced both pieces of code were correct. I thought the test was correct, and since I just wrote the code, I assumed the code was incorrect. As for another pair of eyes, I've many coworkers, and they all are good coders, but they're all fluent in a subset of shell, awk, C, Java, .NET, Python, FORTRAN, Dingo, and C++.

Good advice, but it wouldn't have helped me.

    Tell that to the teddy bear. Literally, explain the code to a teddy bear or anyone who happens to be passing. Just the act of talking a problem through often clarifies the issue. If your cow-orkers have even a little programming experience that will help a lot.

    Not telling the teddy bear is not an excuse.
