    I move that it be resolved that for the purposes of this golf the alphabet may not include a zero.

    Is there a second?


      I move that it be resolved that the golf meet the original spec. Particularly since it was rather carefully and precisely defined.

      Which means that you lazy bums also need to handle the ASCII character "\n" correctly. :-P

      Absolutely. :)
