Subh, posting the same code again and again every few seconds doesn't qualify as a new solution. A couple of your posts have been deleted from this thread for that very reason. Please do not post the same code multiple times.

P.S: You don't have to use the "quote" button/tag to post your code. Just use the "code" button/tag.

Have you tried that code in the test harness which Tim posted at the beginning of this thread? It failed when I tried it.

Yes. It fails on the second test sentence by 1 word "i". Despite passing the first test sentence the code has a flaw (it's searching for patterns even in-between words).
Am working on a version that sticks solely to space-delimited words. It would be so far a unique solution if i pull it off. Thanks for pointing this out.

Bell Katapa, both your new attempts pass the test harness.

Just a few days left to go now. The competition will close at midnight Prague time (CEST - Central European Summer Time) on Friday 10-Oct. Keep those entries coming.

And remember.... obfuscation is the name of the game. We want to see the most outrageously incomprehensible code you can come up with. Let your imagination run wild!

Joe Harry, did your solution pass the test harness? I couldn't get it to.

Tim, which TimeZone should we fit to meet the end-of-Friday criteria ?

Competition closes at midnight Friday CEST - Central European Summer Time. Which is UTC+02:00.

That's the official cut-off time, but I'm not going to be particularly militant about it so if some entries come in soon after then I'll probably accept them too.

Thanks, no big deal. I think you got the spelling right unless my eyes are acting on me.

That's the problem with giving Sheriffs so much power. They go around editing their earlier posts and then later posts don't make sense any more.

Exciting new Announcement

Just when you thought this competition for a free GeeCON Prague ticket couldn't get any better, thanks to the generosity of the organisers we are now offering all participants a 30% discount on the cost of a ticket.

All you have to do to be eligible is post a competition entry in this thread (all existing participants are automatically eligible). So get your creative coding hats on and show us your most unreadable, confusing, and bizarre solutions you can think of. The wackier the better.

Just for kicks, here's what I came up with for an offline challenge with a non-rancher friend. As CodeRanch Staff I'm not eligible for entry into this competition so I'm posting this for fun and inspiration.

With the following helper methods

Tim, your solution doesn't comply The Rules As far as I understood, the whole solution should fit inside wordOccurrence method. You have helper methods. Not to mention required additional imports.

Not necessarily. The solution has to comply with the signature of the wordOccurrence method. That is all.

Adam Czysciak wrote:You have helper methods

Yes I do. No rule against it.

Adam Czysciak wrote:Not to mention required additional imports.

No problem with that. The whole of the Java8 JDK is available to you.

ah, okay I just thought that every solution posted here should be compileable when pasted into wordOccurrence method *without* any other changes in the class source. So, to be clear, you can test it by pasting code and doing auto-organize imports in your favourite IDE, and then launching Or we can put our imports (from JDK8 only) in the solution.

Either is fine Adam. Campbell and I have been testing the solutions so far and we're both more than capable of figuring out the imports ourselves. Well, our IDE's are anyway

My two options ::

version 1:


version 2 using mix of unicode and plain text in sourcecode for obfuscation

Last Chance Saloon.... Competition closes tonight, midnight CEST

The entry that we, the CodeRanch Staff, deem to be the most imaginatively obfuscated solution will win a free ticket to GeeCON Prague. All other participants will receive a 30% discount voucher for conference ticket purchases.

Some great entries so far. Keep 'em comin'.
