    Hey, you never updated this with Challenge 3.
    I was using this to see when it was posted.

    Can we post entries in bash? Or that just counts as scripting, not programming ?

    You can use any language.

    These challenges are fun. I did the first one on my break.

    I was thinking a few days ago that the more recent challenges are getting more complicated (databases?). Perhaps we should have more skill levels? Like "Intermediate Programming Challenges" and "Advanced Programming Challenges" and so on.

    I also came up with an initial Intermediate one. This can actually be done in nine (slightly tricky Python) lines though, so maybe it should be classified with the beginners challenges instead. Well, it was only an idea...

    Objective:

    Given a stream of text, find the most common word.

    Additional Objectives (optional):

    Try to ignore punctuation.

    Try to be case insensitive.

    They are meant to be done in order, not for perpetual beginners.

    Re: [Beginner] Programming Challenges Index

    I was wondering about that. Still, won't the title eventually be inaccurate?

    Hmm... I guess one would just change [Beginner] to something else eventually.
