KiXgolf: Linear Pachinko - Private Round

=============
The Challenge: Linear Pachinko
=============


This problem is inspired by Pachinko, a popular game in Japan. A traditional Pachinko machine is a cross between a vertical pinball machine and a slot machine. The player launches small steel balls to the top of the machine using a plunger as in pinball. A ball drops through a maze of pins that deflect the ball, and eventually the ball either exits at a hole in the bottom and is lost, or lands in one of many gates scattered throughout the machine which reward the player with more balls in varying amounts. Players who collect enough balls can trade them in for prizes.

For the purposes of this problem, a linear Pachinko machine is a sequence of one or more of the following: holes ("."), floor tiles ("_"), walls ("|"), and mountains ("/\"). A wall or mountain will never be adjacent to another wall or mountain. To play the game, a ball is dropped at random over some character within a machine. A ball dropped into a hole falls through. A ball dropped onto a floor tile stops immediately. A ball dropped onto the left side of a mountain rolls to the left across any number of consecutive floor tiles until it falls into a hole, falls off the left end of the machine, or stops by hitting a wall or mountain. A ball dropped onto the right side of a mountain behaves similarly. A ball dropped onto a wall behaves as if it were dropped onto the left or right side of a mountain, with a 50% chance for each. If a ball is dropped at random over the machine, with all starting positions being equally likely, what is the probability that the ball will fall either through a hole or off an end?

For example, consider the following machine, where the numbers just indicate character positions and are not part of the machine itself:

 Code:
123456789
/\.|__/\.

The probabilities that a ball will fall through a hole or off the end of the machine are as follows, by position: 1=100%, 2=100%, 3=100%, 4=50%, 5=0%, 6=0%, 7=0%, 8=100%, 9=100%. The combined probability for the whole machine is just the average, which is approximately 61.111%.

=============
Inputs & Outputs
=============


Input: The input consists of a linear Pachinko machines, 1Ė99 characters long

Output: For each machine, compute as accurately as possible the probability that a ball will fall through a hole or off the end when dropped at random, then output that percentage truncated to an integer by dropping any fractional part.

=======
Scoring
=======


The solution must pass all tests in order for it's KiXgolf Score to be considered.

When posting KiXtart Golf Scores, please include the KIXGOLF_*.TXT file that is created in the script directory. It contains some basic information about the computer that the script is run on and the resulting scores.

============
Test program
============


Test cases are provided to help screen entries and to provide the Golf Score.
Any script that passes the test cases can be submitted. If you are surprised that your solution passed the test cases, please submit it anyway! That will help me identify bugs in the test program.

================================================================
KiXtart GOLF - How To Play
================================================================


Most importantly, anybody can play, no age restrictions, no penalties, no handicap!

The object in "real" golf is to hit the ball in the hole in the fewest strokes. The object in KiXtart Golf is to get from input (tee) to target (hole) in the fewest keystrokes.

Example: How many positive elements are in array $a?

Array $a could be of structure $a=[1, 2 ,-3, 4, -5, -7, 8, 9]

One approach:
 Code:
for $b=0 to ubound($a)
  if $a[$b]>0
    $c=$c+1
  endif
next

for a score of 45.

Another solution is:
 Code:
DO
  $b=$b+1
  if $a[$b]>0
    $c=$c+1
  endif
UNTIL $b>(UBOUND($a)+1)

for a score of 53.

Better approach: Code sample 1

================================================================
KiXtart GOLF - The Rules
================================================================


1) The goal of KiXtart Golf is to score the lowest strokes.
2) Strokes are all characters in a piece of code except whitespace characters, unless the whitespace character is necessary for the line of code to work. Therefore, carriage returns and line feeds do not count or spaces in between the '=' sign when assigning variables, e.g. '$a = $b' scores 5.
3) Code can be constructed any way you like, as long as it does not generate syntax or other errors when running the script in KiXtart.
4) The final solution MUST pass all test scripts that are part of the KiXtart golf challenge.
7) During the private coding phase, no code is allowed to be posted. Violations result in disqualification of said player.
8) During the public coding phase, code should be posted, reused, and borrowed from other players.
9) The test script contains the official KiXgolf scoring engine
10) Only the person posting a particular score will be recognized for the score, unless the KiXtart Golf Challenge organizer or another delegate posts code on behalf of a player
11) KiXtart Golf (a.k.a KiXgolf) codes must be written inside the KiXgolf UDF collection tags, ';!' and ';!;!'
12) Parameter names of the UDF's can be changed and additional optional parameters can be added.
13) Additional helper UDFs can be written as long as they reside inside the ';!' and ';!;!' tags.
14) The use of '$' as a variable is allowed.
15) The UDF layout is up to coder.
16) The UDF is expected to finish in a reasonable time, that is, on modern computers inside 1 hour timeframe.
17) You can submit scores as often as you want.
18) If you reach leading score, you are obligated to post your score immediately so others can try to compete with you.
19) The UDF may only use the KiXtart/KiXforms commands/functions/macros, no other code fragments are allowed.
20) Calls to COM components that are part of a standard default Windows installation are allowed.
21) The use of the KiXforms DLL is also permitted as the KiXforms DLL can now be considered an integral part of KiXtart scripting.
22) Calls to other executables, as long as they are part of a standard default Windows installation are allowed.
23) The UDF should be self-contained (except for any I/O mentioned in the challenge). In particular, you may not do things like fetching extra data from a remote site or file.
24) You may assume ASCII as character set.
25) You may use block comments as the KiXgolf Scoring Engine now supports block comments.
26) You are allowed to only use publicly available versions of KiXtart and KiXforms, private builds or alpha builds are NOT allowed.
27) Your submitted score must include the result print of the KiXgolf test-engine.
28) The SETOPTION() parameters in the KiXgolf script may not be modified and will govern the script behavior. SETOPTION() parameters may change depending on the particular needs of the KiXgolf challenge.
29) Tokenizing the UDF, script, or portions thereof is not allowed.
30) If something is not explicitly denied by the rules, it's allowed.
31) If Confusion arises, arranger of the KiXgolf round has the final say.
32) Additional test cases can be added during the private round by submitting a proposal for a new test case to the BBS. The proposed test case becomes official once it has been added to the existing test cases and the KiXgolf package has been reposted for download. If new test cases are added within 12 hours of private round end the private round will extend by an additional 24 hours. The public round will then start one day later and also end one day later. Not additional test cases will be added during the public round.


================================================================
KiXtart GOLF - The Duration of the Competition
================================================================


1) Private coding phase: From date/time of posting the tournament challenge to October 10 6pm EST (BBS+6 time)

2) Public coding phase: From October 10 6EST (BBS+6 time) to October 14 6pm EST (BBS+6 time)

3) Final results: October 15 11pm EST (BBS+6 time)

You will need the complete package from http://s91376351.onlinehome.us/kixtart/kixgolf_lp.zip.

Rule 26) You are allowed to only use publicly available versions of KiXtart and KiXforms, private builds or alpha builds are NOT allowed.

Thus, you can use 4.60 or 4.53 or 4.00 or whatever other 4.x version you dig out. Who knows, maybe one of the versions contains a bug/feature that shaves off characters that other versions don't have ;\)

Well, yes and no.

I gave up with the new approach and instead reworked my initial 'conventional' one. I was surprised how much there still was to shave. On the other side it will probably not go beneath 200. In the mean time it looks really like random characters

Terrible, I've only really tried one Golf and that was the Aztec counting one. Learned some neat stuff but without the help of Allen I would not have gotten off the ground.
Often I just don't seem to have the vision for this Golf stuff. I can code okay in general but I suppose without seeing the real life use, need, method I can't seem to get started so out of frustration I normally don't bother. i.e. If I can't get some useful results within like 20 minutes then I lose the drive to keep going on it as I find other things to occupy time on the computer.

So, congrats Garg I think you're doing a great job, just hang in there.

And crap it is. Tried several different approaches but all crashed and burned killing all passengers and crew. I guess I'll wait for the public round all my stuff up until now leads nowhere and does not do what it should do.

Iím not sure but I suspect Jooel to be cooking up a 10 character stinker and post it like one minute before this round ends.

Re: KiXgolf: Linear Pachinko - Private Round

Jochen,

If your 192 code works with the 'official' ini file, that's a valid score, so you can run with that, unless Jens will recognize the extra test as a nice addition in which case he can add it to the official ini.

If he will add it, it would be nice for you guys, because then the deadline will be moved to 24 hours later, which gives y'all more time to catch up. \:\)

Either way is no problem for me, so it's up to Jens I guess...

This new 38% Test 10 will be added to the official package. The private round will be extended by 24 hours. A new official package will be posted once I'm home, which should be around 10pm EST.

Apologies for the sneaky entry. Gotta heavy schedule at the moment, but I gave myself a couple of hours off for good behaviour and thought I'd participate as a way of relaxing.

I'm sure that you've already realised that once you have thought around the problem the low scoring code pretty much writes itself.

With most of these golf tournaments the real gains are not so much in the coding but in the approach \:\)

One last shot, but I have to get back to the boring stuff now...

So true, my basic approach from score 444 to 161 didn't change, but if you start out with a wrong aproach it's a devil to change your thinking to come up with another approach.

Ok, 8 hours left, 26 to go for Rogier, only 4 for Richard.
Got an appointment with the Doctor next, but will return to the battle for the last 5 hours or so.

Allen thinks... damn, there went 3rd
Jochen thinks... damn, there went 2nd (ain't that extra 24 hours a bitch?)
Rogier thinks... self writing code... you better get on a diet quick.
