My Code Blog: ICFP Contest 2008 - impressive - So, I just finished sleeping off a "double all-nighter" for the ICFP Programming Contest. The task this year was to write a controller for a Mars rover. The program would connect to a server which would send it periodic telemetry updates and then it would send back instructions, either Accelerate, Brake, Left, or Right. I had tried to get a team together for this contest, but it was apparently a busy weekend and all my programmer friends had other plans.After thinking about the problem (and my situation as a solo entry) for a few minutes, I decided it would be interesting to see if I could write it in TeX. Lately I've been writing a whole lot of TeX for Andy Ruina, as well as for a macro package (inlinedef) I recently submitted to CTAN, so the idea didn't seem too crazy ("When all you've got is a hammer...").
