Maybe I should disqualify Bryce for cheating as he did post a potential solution I'll make sure that the next round will have an unmanageably long file name Also, the rules already take care of this via
Quote:


  • 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.





  • And I see that Jooel is his usual self and raises to the challenge. BTW, I'll keep the VALs in place because an intrinsic conversion of a NULL to a zero would happen anyway when comparing the function result against the expected result. I also do not have the zero as a test case, thus from an test suite eval point of view, there's no damage done.

    Regarding the rumor of changing the rules in mid-race, I was informed by one of the participants that the name of the function penalizes certain potential approaches. As it is not my intention, I will change the name of the function that is being called to a one-character name of A(). While technically this is not a rule-change, I do realize that it can potentially affect the outcome. I will therefore recognize two first-round winners, one for the tightest code before the function name change, thus anything posted before this one, and a second one, if necessary, for the tightest code after the function name change. I will also notify all participants via PM of this change.

    The updated package is available at http://s91376351.onlinehome.us/kixtart/kixgolf_happy_numbers.zip

    You can either download the new package or rename your function from HappyNumbers() to A(). The old scores will stay as is but you can post a new set of score with the changed function name as this will definitely reduce the KiXgolf score.

    I think that this is a "fair and balanced"TM approach.

    So let me get this straight... this new UDF name removes 22 strokes... so 142-22=120... and EVEN with that I still don't beat Lonk's pre -22 code. GAWD!

    hmm...
    jens, this is not the first time the penalizing occurs but, hey as long as I stay in the lead, I don't cry.

    we also did quite extensive testing on 1 char udf names with hoby and never got it short enough...
    so, happy trying everyone.

    you can do better than that

    do you have sleep lines in your code or why it takes so long to process?

    I posted that code knowing full well that if someone was to use it as a "solution" it would be against the spirit of the game.
