Showing what's behind the curtain

102 concise rough-draft Python programs concentrating on formulaic solutions to easier problems on SPOJ.

More older solutions (fewer than 15 lines) to some SPOJ classical problems using Python that will cause one to pause and think. Then optimize for a first-place time spot. Most of these were written in Perl or C++ and I have been converting them to Python. Many solutions have Perl-like references and influences in them. […]

More solutions (fewer than 10 lines) to some SPOJ classical problems using Python. Warning: SPOJ may prevent Python from being used for solving some problems or set time limits suitable only for archaic compiled languages. Most of these were written in Perl and I have been converting them to Python. Many solutions have Perl-like references […]
