@Adám that won't help much when you transpose eta to eat or tea ;-)
@Neil That's when you need an AI to guess the "right" word...
@Bubbler but there's still a chance of getting the wrong word
The "right" word is completely subjective
Is it not?
But I've probably missed a joke here
Of course an AI can't be 100% correct
so it's not a good task for, say code golf, but it's still an interesting problem in general

A: Golfing Class of a language

Essentially, the solution is find the best solutions in each language to each challenge, and then treat each pair of such solutions as a match between those two languages, with the winner being the shorter submi...

Q: Extract words with clue numbers in a Crossword puzzle

BubblerRelated: Read a crossword Task Given a completed Crossword puzzle, extract the words in it with their respective clue numbers, with "across" (horizontal) and "down" (vertical) words grouped and ordered like a real crossword puzzle. The words are numbered in the row-major order of their first l...

@Adám Is there any reason for Dyalog APL to deviate on ¯4○Y from other APLs (which define it as simply (¯1+Y*2)*0.5)?
After some more experiment, it actually looks like J's doc is imprecise.
5:04 AM
Whoops, wrong room.
@Bubbler Which doc?
@Adám Both J doc and NuVoc.
"Sqrt (Sqr y)-1" and "sqrt (_1+(y^2))" are the same as (¯1+Y*2)*0.5, no?
It actually computes sinh arccosh y, which is sometimes the negative of that.
5:28 AM
@Bubbler Huh, so almost everyone neglected to check the documentation when they added complex numbers. Only NARS2000 gets it right: (R+1)×√(R-1)÷(R+1)
Dyalog one is also fine. It uses that exact formula, and manually fills the gap at -1 (because that formula hits division by zero).
No, I don't mean that the formula they use is wrong, only that the previously correct documentation ceased to be correct when complex numbers were added.
5:44 AM
@Bubbler How did I manage to get it right in APLcart
6:08 AM
@Bubbler So ¯4○ is sinh arcosh and 4○ is cosh arsinh. Are there similar formulations for ¯8○ and 8○ and 0○?
6:31 AM
@Adám Yes, 0○ is cos arcsin or sin arccos.
@Adám I've got no idea for 8○. 0○ is correct.
@Bubbler There aren't any for ¯8○ and 8○. I just wrote a program to search for it.
@Adám Btw, didn't you realize this chatroom isn't the Orchard...?
I did, but nobody is here anyway.
@Bubbler Might interest you. Not beautiful code, but did the trick.

@Neil Jelly is admittedly terrible. Jelly is even worse however, since I couldn't even program in it.
@Λ̸̸ In order to program in Jelly, you need more than just training, you need Jelly Hypertraining™!
I never understood (and will never understand) how are chains evaluated, so when I have to program in Jelly, I simply reorder characters until it works and also try to add random quicks (those with the complicated descriptions) in random places. It usually works in the end.

BubblerExplicit-ify APL expressions involving trains code-golf parsing apl Related: Clearly parenthesize APL trains Background In the most basic form, APL has two kinds of tokens: arrays and functions. For this challenge, we will use a lowercase letter a-z for an array, and an uppercase letter A-Z fo...

Hey guys I made one trivial code-golf challenge and one more serious related fastest-code. Since the explanation of the first it's fully contained in the second, can I merge them in one single post then accepting 2 different categories of answers? Or should I keep them separated?

Q: Chinese checkers adjacent squares

applemonkey496Challenge You have a Chinese Checkers board looking like this: board = [ [''], ['', ''], ['', '', ''], ['', '', '', '', '', '', ''], ['', '', '', '', '', ''], ['', '', '', '', ''], ['', '', '', '', '', ''], ['', '', '', '', '', '', ''], ...

@DomenicoModica Keep them separated. One requirement for a challenge is that we must be able to decide on a single winner based on the criterion.
