Announcement: KiXgolf Tournament September 9-23

The next KiXgolf tournament will be held September 9-23. The challenge can be descibed as 'jump'n'slide' but it ain't your Grandma's ballroom dancing Wink

The last tournament can be found at KiXgolf: Mayan Number Converter

For those of you who never heard of KiXgolf, here's the rundown:

================================================================
KiXtart GOLF - How To Play
================================================================


Most importantly, anybody can play, no age restrictions, no penalties, no handicap!

The object in "real" golf is to hit the ball in the hole in the fewest strokes. The object in KiXtart Golf is to get from input (tee) to target (hole) in the fewest keystrokes.

Example: How many positive elements are in array $a?

Array $a could be of structure $a=[1, 2 ,-3, 4, -5, -7, 8, 9]

One approach:
Code:

for $b=0 to ubound($a)
  if $a[$b]>0
    $c=$c+1
  endif
next

for a score of 45.

Another solution is:
Code:

DO
  $b=$b+1
  if $a[$b]>0
    $c=$c+1
  endif
UNTIL $b>(UBOUND($a)+1)

for a score of 53.

Better approach: Code sample 1

================================================================
KiXtart GOLF - The Rules
================================================================


1) The goal of KiXtart Golf is to score the lowest strokes.
2) Strokes are all characters in a piece of code except whitespace characters, unless the whitespace character is necessary for the line of code to work. Therefore, carriage returns and line feeds do not count or spaces in between the '=' sign when assigning variables, e.g. '$a = $b' scores 5.
3) Code can be constructed any way you like, as long as it is syntactically correct with KiXtart, i.e. the KiXgolf engine does not throw a syntax or other error.
4) The final solution MUST pass all test scripts that accompagny the KiXtart golf challenge.
5) The use of '$' as a variable is allowed.
6) In case of questions about a particular way to count the KiXtart Golf Challenge organizer has the last call.
7) During the private coding phase, no code is allowed to be posted. Violations result in disqualification of said player.
Cool During the public coding phase, code should be posted, reused, and borrowed from other players.
9) The test script contains the official KiXgolf scoring engine
10) Only the person posting a particular score will be recognized for the score, unless the KiXtart Golf Challenge organizer or another delegate posts code on behalf of a player
