Project Euler: Just two tiny notes

Just two things I felt like mentioning:

Thing number one

I got tired of the page 2 stuff. So, I swapped all the <!–nextpage–> things with <!–more–> and a header. Which means that the solution will now be on the same page as the problem. (Although not on the index page).

Thing number two

My brother puts his whole solution on a public subversion repository, which is a very good idea. Following his good example, I did a repository dump of my local VisualSVN Server and… undumped(??) it into one I set up here on my web host which I will be using from now on instead.

Update: SubVersion turned out to be a bit blah sometimes, so I am trying out Mercurial now instead. The repository has been converted and published on BitBucket. Mercurial seems a lot nicer than SubVersion so far. You can find a very good introduction at

Thing number three

Works On My MachineOk, ok, the topic says two, but I just figured I should maybe mention one more thing. You see, the code you will find in my aforementioned subversion repository cannot be run. Like, there is no main method or anything there. That is because I am trying to teach myself how to use test cases, etc. So, instead of creating an executable program for each problem or one program with fancy “Solve problem #n”-buttons, I decided to just do it all in test cases. So, my solutions are actually found as part of the test project (well, the running of them anyways). I am using to run them, and it works great. This way I can also do a lot of changes, and then just run my tests and make sure that all my solutions still calculate correctly. Awesome stuff.

    First LaTeX formulas and now ViewVC? How do you come up with these things?

  • Haha. LaTeX I kind of touched in on during my bachelor degree. Well, actually we didn’t, but I was looking into figuring out how I could write clean and awesome notes during math. Which brought me to LaTeX. Never used it extensively though… And then I found a LaTeX plugin for WordPress. ViewVC I discovered when reading the Dreamhost subversion wiki page while trying to figure out how to do that repository dump and undump.
