What's New - May, 2017
May 14, 2017: Here's a puzzle that required a 25 line program to solve (at least for me). If you want to try it on you own, here it is:
We have two normal 12 hour clocks
that start running at 12:00. One loses two minutes every hour and the
other gains two minutes every hour. How many hours will elapse before
both clocks again show the same time?
May 23 2017: I recently needed to extract information about a particular location collected over time and buried in many large files. This was a one-time study, not worth writing a separate program. In order to assemble the needed data from several files, I modified our Text Search program to append selected records into an single text file Text Search 2.2 posted today, now allows appending as an alternative to overwriting an existing file with the same name.
