ASCII art puzzle discussion


#296

They are given because they change from one test to another.


#297

Whats the expected output for the “@” character ?
Im sending the same result as the “A” character and its failing
Failure
Found: # #
Expected: # # #

all other test cases are working fine


#298

Is “@” in the character list?


#299

one of the test cases sends the string “M@NH@TT@N”,
so, whats the expected result ?
I tried MANHATTAN (in ascii art) without success


#300

@ is not a valid character, so you should display ‘?’

Ok, that worked, thanks


#302

I had the same problem.
I don’t know what your solution is as i don’t see your code.

This is was what fixed it for me:
I added Char.IsLetter(‘any character’) method to my solution and i used ‘?’ instead of spaces.
It went to 100% after that.

I have absolutely no it worked :smiley:


#303

Your comment should be at the top, lol, Thanks


#304

Merci, merci, merci !
Mon francais est pauvre, je sais.
Je crois que les spécifications du problème aussi sont pauvres.
J’avais des difficultés aussi avec les letttres petites et majuscules; j’ai pensé que, peut-être, les lettres petites était dénommées 27 - 52.
Pfft… beaucoup de temps perdu.

You can speak in English as well.


#306

Thanks!
I thought I’d honour the thread, so to speak.
It’s interesting for me to try to express myself in French and I reckon it’s a bit amusing or maybe perplexing to those who know the language well.


#307

I corrected your French. :wink:


#308

Hello, does anyone know what is the meaning of “another ASCII representation” in the last test??


#309

It’s not the one given in the example?


#311

Hello everyone!
I am trying to complete the puzzle in c++. I split the string of alphabet characters and stored each letter in a multidimensional array: string MultiArr[H][27]. I converted the line of text in input in decimal for recognising each letter without using if or switch loop. My last problem is how to print out in the same line. With the single letter is ok, but the output of the second example is as in the image:

Thanks in advance!


#312

You need to refactor your program to print line per line instead if per letter.

Line 0 -> Print one line with every MultiArr[0][foreach letter in word]
Line N -> Print one line with every MultiArr[N][foreach letter in word]

instead of

Letter 0 -> Print N lines MultiArr[0->N][letter]


#313

It works!
Thanks :slight_smile:


#314

Bonjour,
Je valide tout sauf le 7 : Test full alphabet in CAPS WMADXESFGIJVTHKNOBPLYQR
Vous avez un idée de pourquoi ?

Par avance merci !


#316

This has probably been said before in one of the ~300 comment but:
If you’re failing the Lorem ipsum test, look at where you read the input. Make sure your program reads lines not words . The “starting code” for a lot of languages doesn’t …
In my case, I was reading only “Lorem” and wasted a lot of time before I looked there :expressionless:

I really think this problem should’ve had an example with spaces


#317

All of the tests except the first one show as wrong because they want 2 spaces at the end? Is this a glitch?
