POTM: KEYSTROKES: The FINALS!

The KEYSTROKES POTM Completed on May 31, 2005
Congratulations to the winner: Amin Allam (aminallam) for FCI_CairoUniv_EGYPT
Two first place finishes and a fourth place finish on the three final problems!

The problem seems to have been tougher than it appeared at first glance! The "trivial" solution (replacing each line entirely) was good enough for a 12th place tie. A few of the top finishers were chasing Amin's entry on the final day but FCI_CairoUniv_EGYPT held onto the lead it had established during the system testing. The three final tests were constructed at the end of April to stress various elements of the problem: TYPO had scattered small errors, POTM had larger inserted strings, MONTY had start and stop blocks that shared vocabulary. The solutions of the top four finishers is linked in text form for your perusal.
