    Editor's opinion: Choose Problem Solving!

    In a Problem Solving Contest, a problem will be selected by me and given to the contestant population. To solve this program, you must create a program that accepts some input and prints out the solution. You must figure out how to solve the problem, and write a program determining that.

    For example:

    Write an interpreter that accepts three types of sentences:

    NOUN IS NOUN.
    VERB NOUN NOUN?
    NOUN VERB NOUN?

    and prints sensible answers based on the questions asked, and based on the data given.

    that's not a good example... but it's much more in-depth than that. if you're interested in a contest where

    I chose problem solving, but the maze might also be cool.
