Some final testing and analysis of the entriesfor Problem 2, Tiling Rectangles, is being completed by the judges. We will be announcing the winners by the end of this week. Thanks for your patience.
I made a mistake in attribution of one module of my "Rectangle Tiling" submission, and I wanted to bring this to the attention of the judges in the interest of fairness. The modules Allocator.cpp and Allocator.h were originally developed by me for my company and a third party. Later they were released by the third party under LGPL here: http://oss.extendthereach.com/svn/repos/explorer/geocoder/trunk/global/BulkAllocator.cpp
Master Level Participants: Your good fortune. Due to my reminder message error regarding the closing date for the Master Level Problem 2, Tiling Rectangles, we will formally extend the closing date for Problem 2 to 12:00pm, Noon, Pacific Daylight Time, Monday, June 6, 2011. We will update the website to reflect this change. If you have already submitted your entry, you may submit an updated entry by this new deadline. Hope you can take advantage of this extra time.
Lots of coding going on for the Threading Challenge 2011.Just a reminder thatMaster Problem 2, Tiling Rectangles, closes at 12:00pm Noon, Pacific Daylight Time, Monday, June 6, 2011. Please make sure to submit your entry by this deadline.
Keep up all your coding efforts!!
Has anyone considered this problem ? For arbitrary input set with length of n ( i.e. n squares), what is the upperbound for the number of different results ?
I'm ready to sumbit my entry, but I'm not sure how to do it.
The first question is whether I have to submit just the executable, just the source code or both.
My solution is implemented in a VS2010 32 bit console application.
Will the judging ignore differences in output whitespace (padding, etc) in the grouped integer lists, and/or padding at EOL?
The attached file tests dimensions >= 2^31 and also tests combinatoric factors.
Perhaps I missed this, but it would be really nice to have the setsin.txt and rectout.txt available as files so we don't have any ambiguity around whitespace and such. I've attached a copy/paste from the website; should we use this as a template?
