in reply to J.L. Ford's "Challenges"

Does anyone know whether the solutions to these "challenges" have been published anywhere?
If you post them here, I'll bet you'd get tons of proposed solutions—which I think is much more interesting than a single author's take on a problem, anyway. In fact, I'll bet a compendium of them could make a really fun Seekers thread (as long as people are good about using <spoiler>).

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    WoW! That would be an interesting approach and a challenge in itself. But for that to work, the scripts which the challenges are supposed to amend would also have to be posted, and that would probably be a copyright infringement.

      Good point—I hadn't thought of that, and I'm not sure that I share anonymonk's confidence that it's fair use. I'm not familiar with the challenges, but would it be possible for you to describe, in your own words, the challenges that we're trying to meet, or are they crucially tied to particular scripts to be fixed?

      UPDATE in response to a downvote: I'm not saying that it's not fair use, just that I don't know enough (any) copyright law to know that it is.

        My immediate response is that, yes, you'd have to have access to a code block -- maybe more than one -- in order to address the challenge. On the other hand, I'll give it some thought. Maybe my "immediate response" is too, well, immediate.

      Fair use
