After noticing a particular submission from someone (you know who you are), I feel that this message needs to be heard, particularly by Churchill PEG members. The admins of this site are really not dumb. Looking at a submission, we can easily tell whether someone earned the points for a problem legitimately. We realize for many problems on the PEG Judge, solution descriptions or even solution programs can be found online. There is nothing we can do to stop you from giving yourself a hint by, for instance, reading a few sentences of a solution PDF, and then implementing the program on your own.

The problem arises when you copy somebody else's program, change some variables, add a few sporadic comments, and submit it in one go for a perfect score. This is blatantly cheating. We don't really care about this for public users. It's their own programming skills that they're trying to improve; there are certainly no merits to copy-pasting code all day long to gain imaginary points on a website. However, for aspiring programmers in PEG consistently competing with each other (for ranks, rewards, trips, etc.), points DO mean something. Thus, we must be particularly strict with enforcement of this policy.

It is very unfortunate that not only did you try to illegitimately obtain 50 points through 1 problem while your peers are working so hard to even earn 30 on several, you decided to brag about solving it on your own in the comments. It is even more unfortunate that you chose to do this right after we all discussed proper use of the PEG Judge last Wednesday. In the past, our leaders/teachers would not have hesitated to kick out students for such offenses. For this one time, the score for your submission has been set to zero. It's never happened before (and we don't plan for it to), but if similar events persist, we just might start seeing negative scores for submissions. Let's learn to be grateful that such a wonderful practice tool is available for us.

TL;DR - Just get points legitimately; we're reaching a limit on warnings.

Submissions and comments from today (Oct 28) were lost due to an issue with the database.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please remember to always back up your programs locally in case of similar events in the future.

I can't submit anything in Java.. I get an error message saying : Compile failed

sh: cavaj: not found. what does this mean?


I'm experiencing the same problem with my Java submissions.

I think Haskell is broken. Even the sample code does not work.

When submitting a java code, I was faced with this error message and it apparently was not because of my code. Could someone fix this issue with the compiler?

When using regex_match() in C++11, the output yields:
./a: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.14' not found (required by ./a)
./a: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by ./a)

Thanks for the report. I'll look into it.

I changed the C++11 compilation to use static linking. Maybe it works now.

When I click the "detail" button for my own submissions, something like this popped up...

I already know about this, and I'm working on fixing it now.

Now fixed! Report discrepancies.

I remember there was also a button to go back to the question statement.
It was roughly above the test cases...

I added something similar to this version.

The Judge used to not actually keep timestamps on when problems were added, so I had most of them guessed. (For problems in contests, I set it to an hour before the contest began, and for most other problems, I set it to a minute before the earliest submission to the problem.)

Problems added from now on will appear in the correct order. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Clicking "My Submissions" in the drop down menu of the logged in username links to[username]
rather than[username],


It's not yet fixed.

Also, the checkmarks/pencils beside solved problems link to:[problemID]
