Okay, everybody:

I think I have a new challenging KiXtart Golf tournament for you.
First of all, I'd like to credit BrianTX (I believe) for the idea to this challenge.
Secondly, the timeframe is a total of 10 days. A private coding phase with no code postings allowed will run from now to Wednesday afternoon.

Because of the complexity of the problem and time constraints of participants, the deadline for the first part has been extended to Saturday, July 20, 6pm EST. Part 2 (public improvements of code) will begin automatically after this date/time.

A second public coding phase, including postings of code, will run from Wednesday afternoon to Sunday evening.

Follwing are the official rules for the contest:
================================================================
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)[/code]

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 is syntactically correct with KiXtart.

4) The final solution MUST pass all test scripts that accompagny the KiXtart golf challenge.

5) The use of '$' as a variable is allowed.

6) In case of questions about a particular way to count the KiXtart Golf Challenge organizer has the last call.

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 following script can be used to count the KiXtart Golf score: http://81.17.37.55/board/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=003418

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

1) Private coding phase: From date/time of posting the tournament challenge to the following Wednesday, 3pm EST (BBS+6 time)

2) Public coding phase: From Wednesday 3pm EST (BBS+6 time) to the following Sunday, 7pm EST (BBS+6 time)

3) Final results: The following Monday, 11am EST (BBS+6 time)

******************************
* The KiXtart Golf Challenge *
******************************

Write a UDf that can replace the 'REGEDIT /S' registry import.

Three test registry files have been provided and should go into the same directory as the test script. The test script checks whether the written UDF imports the registry files correctly by checking for registry keys, registry types, and registry values.

The registry files can be imported into Windows 9x, NT, 2000, XP but have only been tested with Windows 2000.

Please insert your UDf inside the marked space at the end of the test script. The test script will the run your UDF and check whether all registry keys are correctly placed.

All necessary files are posted below:

All files can also be downloaded at http://people.bu.edu/jenmeyer/kixtart/golf.zip

ok, I made fully working script for just strings and it says: undefined variable even though the first line defines the variable as 0

have you tested your script?

Lonkero:

did you use the .REG files from the downloadable ZIP-file that I provided or did you copy and paste the .REG files?

I did check my ZIP file and it seemed to be okay. The best way to test those .REG fiels is to just import tme with REGEDIT and see what they are doing.

Let me know if there are any problems.

Lonkero:

I did test the golf.kix script. I first imported the three .REG files with REGEDIT. I then ran the GOLF.KIX script under KiXtart 4.10a and it gave mo no errors. I did use a dummy function for ImportRegFile() though just so I can verify the registry entry testing part.

So, are you okay now? Or are there still any problems?

I'll download your zip again.
I'll run the reg files with my working code to see if them really work.
as I see it, reg-files are just text-files with reg-extension so they should open correctly with kixtart...

I'll return my feedback on this soon (if I don't passout!)

cheers,

Yes, they are plain text files. The identifyer is 'REGEDIT4' in the first line denoting a registry file. Under Windows 2000 this first ID line is different if you export a regfile out of the registry.

downloaded and tested again.
don't know. this is probably a windows unicode bug...
I have w2k sp2 here. finnish installation and the lines in your reg-files are showing up as symbols.
don't know about others non-us ppl, but for me those files are corrupted and I can't use them.

cheers,

The REG files supplied are in Unicode format.
These don't work in Windows 98, have to be ascii
or REGEDIT won't recognise them.
Had to load into Wordpad and 'Save As' Text format

The Error Checking code seems to check for the default subkey
entry existing (and = REG_SZ) when it should not be set.
(eg on 'ImportX\subdirectory2' etc)
On Windows 98 this key always exists (and is by default REG_SZ)
- showing 8 errors after merging the supplied files.
eg:
if readtype(HKCU\...\Import1\Subdirectory2','')='REG_SZ'
$errorcount=$errorcount+1
endif

started to work with profilestring-functions and found out that the script is growing over 0.5k!

after spending some 200 minutes on that have to fall back to sleep or to previous state.

This code seems to be incorrect.
code:
; check for registry values in import1
if readvalue('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\KiXtart\KiXtart Golf\Import1','Created 07-13-2002')<>''
$errorcount=$errorcount+1 "Import1','Created 07-13-2002'"
endif
if readvalue('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\KiXtart\KiXtart Golf\Import1\Subdirectory1','')<>'This is a default value'
$errorcount=$errorcount+1 "Subdirectory1',''"
endif
------
if readvalue('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\KiXtart\KiXtart Golf\Import1\Subdirectory1','')<>'A string of type REG_SZ'
$errorcount=$errorcount+1
endif
------

Import1\Subdirectory1','' should be 'String1'

{edit}
A real sucky score but it works! [Big Grin]
KixGolf score = 1657

After some sleep, the score should drop some.
