Hi, I am new to CodinGame and I really like it!
I had a few questions about the use of threads in puzzles.
1- Is multithreading allowed/activated in puzzles and contests?
2- If a challenge timeout should I use multithreading or is there always a way to do it without multiple threads? I see multithreading as a “shortcut” and it feels a bit like cheating. Altough, if it is necessary I will use it
3- If I use threads, how many threads is too much threads? On an 8-core computer I would create about 8 thread, is it different for a server like CodinGame?
Thanks for all answers!
EDIT: I decided to read the comments on the FAQ and found the answer to question 1 and 3. The answers where yes it is allowed/activated and there are usually 4 cores but sometimes 8 available.
