Final Loyds Dilemma Standings


Programmer Of The Month (POTM) participants of the world, 
    please join me in congratulating:

			Stan Peijffers
			AT&T-NSI (Netherlands)

		as the winner of the LOYD'S DILEMMA challenge!

The POTM has now officially gone GLOBAL ... Stan's entry "shufflemania"
found the shortest sequence of moves needed to unscramble the 25 tiles
in the scrambled squares and thus was declared the latest POTM CHAMPION.

Bill Tanenbaum, with his entry "scrambloyd" took top honors in the
Tournament Of Champions division for past winners.

Some backgrond on the five final squares

Back to the list of problems.

Here's the results of the final run:


For each of the five squares (presented below) I show the number of tiles
 properly placed (max 25) and the number of moves it took to get there.
Then the total tiles placed, moves, and transports are given along with
the total time (in milliseconds) for all five squares - note that there was
a 10 minute limit on each square!  If the score shows "0/ILL" the program
attempted an illegal move.  A score of "0/TIM" indicates that the 10 minute
limit was exceeded.
