lol runtimes are the kind of sentiment my theory professor tries to beat out of people on day 1

speaking of TSP though, we used to give that as an intro CS project, and some people cite that as the hardest they've ever worked to understand an assignment

Complexity is very important. Also what did the students have to do ? Solve in exponential time ?

He wasn't asking for help, he was asking for answers.. when he realized we weren't going to write the code for him and instead were trying to help him understand, he peaced out and gave up

This is now the "Computer Science General Discussion" thread, GG

when you ask a programming question, expect to get answers of all sorts

yeah, complexity is important, but moreso than "runtime" for these kinds of questions
my initial response wasn't great because that totally could've been just a time complexity estimation, but i read it as runtime

pretty sure they had to do some kind of branch-and-bound algorithm, though i can't say which one specifically because i don't have a copy of the assignment

no no no no catching on fire is a swift action, not an instant action. you can only catch on fire once per turn.

Oh yeah for an update

I literally had one line of code off and it messed up the whole thing but once i fixed it this assignment was really easy

Coding is actually pretty cool
