12 problems, now – Dec 20th
What you need
- challenge #4 problems and sample input data files (zip)
- contest login (fill out form & immediately receive an email with your login credentials)
- go to http://10.10.35.1/pc2team and login (only works from a school computer or via Wifi connected to education)
- submit your solutions in either Java 1.7, C++, or Python (2.7 or 3.5)
For most problems your program must read a given input file, process the data, and then print the correct output to the screen in exactly the specified format.
For each program you are given a sample input data file and exactly what your program should output for this file. However, when you submit your program it will be judged using additional input data (unknown to you) which your program must also process correctly.
NOTE Your program must read in a file with the same name as the name provided in the problem statement.
NOTE The name of your program can NOT have any spaces in it (probably a good idea not to use any symbols or special characters either).
Once you have written your program and tested it with the provided sample input data file using your favorite Python interpreter or Java/C++ compiler, submit your program to the Programming Contest Control system – aka pc2. From the pc2 web interface choose a problem, choose a language, choose the file containing your program and then click Submit Problem. Pc2 will run your program, compare the output printed by your program to the correct output, and then let you know whether your program produced the correct output or not.
For the automatic judging to work properly, your program output must match the format of the expected output exactly – including punctuation and spacing.
Scoring The challenge uses UIL scoring rules where each program is worth 60pts and 5pts are deducted for every incorrect submission.
NOTE Each line of output ends immediately with a newline character (i.e. there are no extra spaces after the last character of the line). Unless explicitly stated otherwise in the problem,, there are no empty/blank lines after the last line of output.
Please talk to Mr. Mueller, Mr. Shockey or Independent Study students Edison Bertotti, Russell Coleman, or Alexander Wlezien
- if the problem statement is incorrect or incomplete
- if pc2 judges your program to be incorrect, but you are sure your program is producing the correct output
- first make sure your program output for the sample input data file matches the given output exactly
- also make sure you considered possible corner cases that may not have been tested by the sample input data file, but may be tested by the more extensive input file used to judge your program
