Regex golf problems
Courtesy of Erling there is a new problemset - regex - which contains levels from his project Regex Golf. I suggest you check your regexes on that site before submitting it here, so you know how good they are in advance. First 6 problems are worth 5 points and the rest (for now) is worth 10 points.
All programs in all tasks have been rejudged due to update Python 2.5 into 2.7.
Language rankings added!
From now on there are available language rankings which You can check by clicking on language's name on main ranking page.
They (and now also the main ranking) are updated every hour.
Hope it will increase the rivalry in the less popular languages.
If You want to discuss the challenges, You may visit SPOJ's IRC channel.
Language ranking added!
Finally language ranking was fixed.
It's sorted by: POINTS->MAX->SOLVED (where POINTS is language's score, MAX is the number of tasks where each language got max points and SOLVED is the number of tasks solved by each language).
PS Sorry for the delay.
RSS is now available. You can find a link at the bottom of the page.
Thanks to Jan Popiołkiewicz we now have subforum on main SPOJ.
We will discuss there any problems or suggestions about SHORTEN. Hope, it will be useful. :-)
Links and rules are now available in the left menu.
If You have interesting links or hints and want to share it, You can post it on our forum.
Thanks to Adrian Kosowski there appeared a new ranking. Now score for each task is calculated with formula:
Tasks from "main" - 10 points each,
tasks from "tutorial" - 5 points each,
tasks from "printing" - 5 or 10 points.
Now You can rival. :-)
This is a contest where the only challenge is shortening codes of Your programmes.
So... have fun and good luck. ;-)
