The Code Samples

I have hesitated to put up any code samples at all. In a very real way, I feel that having them here is counter to the spirit of Toy Problems, which wants to encourage the reader to think, do, and try him- or herself, rather than just watching a pre-packaged solution.

So, why am I putting them up at all? Mostly to show that interesting problems do not require long programs. Also, I hope that they provide a starting point for those readers who have less programming experience. Finally, a few readers may want to consult a working solution to pick up a useful little technique here and there.

This being said, I would like to add that all code samples are examples only. They are not production ready in any way, and I make no claims to their correctness. I also make no claims to the quality of the code, although I have made an effort to document and comment the code so that it is accessible to others.
