    order + 1

    Since order 0 is just
    /\

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I must say, #1 is a fun little problem. Not too involved, but a few tricky areas. Thanks, it helped to kill a little bit of time. I look forward to seeing the entries for these competitions, it should be interesting.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    CornedBee:
    yep, only standard C/C++, and STL is allowed for C++, check out the bottom of Salem's post.

    Damn, those would have been really helpful in obfuscating...

    Well if you want to enter something for the most procrastinated program, I look forward to your submission sometime in 2010

    Mmm, a couple of entries would be OK so long as they're sufficiently distinct, say an iterative C solution and an STL-based C++ solution.

    Spamming minor variations may get you disqualified.

    No one should have this solution for #2 (less'n they a cheater)
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int mmain
    (int t,int 
    _,
    char*a
    ){return!
    0<t?
    t<3?
    mmain(-79,-13,a+mmain(-87,1-_,mmain(-86, 0, a+1 )+a)):
    1,
    t<_?
    mmain( t+1, _, a )
    :3,
    mmain ( -94, -27+t, a )
    &&t == 2 ?_
    <13 ?
    mmain ( 2, _+1, "%s %d %d\n" )
    :9:16:
    t<0?
    t<-72?
    mmain( _, t,
    "@n'+,#'/*{}w+/w#cdnr/+,{}r/*de}+,/*{*+,/w{%+,/w#q#n+,/#{l,+,/n{n+,/+#n+,/#;#q#n+,/+k#;*+,/'r :'d*'3,}{w+K w'K:'+}e#';dq#'l q#'+d'K#!/+k#;q#'r}eKK#}w'r}eKK{nl]'/#;#q#n'){)#}w'){){nl]'/+#n';d}rw' i;# ){nl]!/n{n#'; r{#w'r nc{nl]'/#{l,+'K {rw' iK{;[{nl]'/w#q#n'wk nw' iwk{KK{nl]!/w{%'l##w#' i; :{nl]'/*{q#'ld;r'}{nlwb!/*de}'c ;;{nl'-{}rw]'/+,}##'*}#nc,',#nw]'/+kd'+e}+;#'rdq#w! nr'/ ') }+}{rl#'{n' ')# }'+}##(!!/")
    :
    t<-50?
    _==*a ?
    putchar(31[a]):
    mmain(-65,_,a+1)
    :
    mmain((*a == '/') + t, _, a + 1 )
    :
    0<t?
    mmain ( 2, 2 , "%s")
    :*a=='/'||
    mmain(0,

    Hell No!! Do I look like a robot?!

    I did make it standards compliant however.

    I got it from the same place where Salem probably got the idea for it.
    It's not a submission into the contest, just an example.
