21:32 mainmethod Heya, I've got a quick question?is there a way of sorting the programming tasks by difficulty?
21:34 kpreid no
21:35 kpreid the tasks aren't designed as a challenge
21:35 kpreid but to be solved once. the education is in studying the solution, not the effort (except for the few people who write it)
21:36 kpreid of course, you *can* solve 'em yourself if you like, but RC itself does not support that
21:36 kpreid does not have facilities to support that
21:37 mainmethod Gotcha, seems like I misunderstood their purpose. Still a great resource for practicing!
21:39 kpreid you could take your favorite language and edit its examples to be better, more awesome examples of the superiority of your language
21:40 mwn3d_phone Its probably safe to say that tasks in [[Category:Basic language learning]] are pretty simple
21:40 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Ca‚Äčtegory:Basic_language_learning
21:41 mwn3d_phone But to assign a difficulty to each task would probably be impossible considering how "difficult" could mean so many things in different languages
21:42 mwn3d_phone Also that's an old category and it probably hasn't been added to for over a year
21:42 mwn3d_phone We sort of gave up on organizing the tasks...
21:45 mwn3d_phone And the tasks are expected to be solved once for each language where its possible but additional solutions are encouraged using different approaches
21:46 mwn3d_phone If you have a better solution using the same approach as an existing one it would probably be better to just replace it

23:10 eel2 REPL log monitoring broke! problem: <EOFException>
23:14 kpreid I should fix that
