Trolling the Homework
This is a great space
one day I discovered on Quora
following an answer given by
a guy named Joe Zbiciak.
He gives creative answer to
simple homework questions by
writing programs I guess the
asker will not understand
because in computer sciences
a student is not supposed to
submit obfuscated code. :-)
I like trolling homework because
trolling is more creative, so I
use the Newton-Raphson method to
solve linear equations.
I soetimes write an Sqlite extension
just to calculate a square root.
I even use the GNU Image Manipulation
Program, known as GIMP, to answer some
simple mathematical question. It has
a scripting language named "Scrip Fu",
which is Scheme with image editing
procedure. It is similar to LISP.
You can run GIMP from the command line
without the GUI just to run scripts.
And Scheme is a good language to train
your brain with, so I installed Scheme84
on my machine.
