# will definitely not work with ruby 1.8.
Algorithm for steps:
- @steps is populated with the starting cell in the beginnign ('A')
- Until a solution is found, @steps replaces its content by the
possible next steps
- If a solution is found, the number is returned, if a solution isn't found
(if @steps is empty), an error is raised (the loop is broken) and rescued

# Polynomial beautifier, by Othmane Benkirane
# The code passes the test but why is @p4 considered as a polynomial ?
# An ArgumentError should be thrown.
# Oh, and... it's got a lot of unseen features. Just see my personal
# specs. It's possible to have a beautiful output (2x³+3x²+10x-1)
# and also several compression types: (x + 5) or (2x² -3x +5)
# Also, shouldn't we do that: puts @polynomial.to_s
