# Quick start

The code for the contest can be obtained from the Github project page

$ git clone https://github.com/PulledPork0/AlgoCompetition.git

The supplied `run_trial.py`

is the scoring program, and you can test it
out on one of the supplied examples: `example.py`

$ ./run_trial.py example

If all the tests pass, the calculated score is listed on the
line `total cost`

, which is followed by
a breakdown of where the computational cost is ocurring

total cost: 5356404348 (5.36e+09) basic operation counts: add:2.73e+05, sub:1.22e+06, mul:1.01e+06, div:4.11e+05 basic operation costs: add:1.48e+07, sub:6.57e+07, mul:8.68e+08, div:4.41e+09 routine counts: gcd:1.00e+04, reduce_form:1.00e+04 routine costs (percent of total): gcd:1.25e+09 (23.4%), reduce_form:3.51e+09 (65.6%)

Check out `example.py`

and `example2.py`

for two example solutions.

Contest registration and submissions will be handled using git repositories. So once you have a working solution, follow the directions in 'Contest Rules' to register and submit your entry.
