I had trouble with the ternary operators as well re: your comment on L18. I believe the interpreter is looking for a variable/function called c? at that point since ?s are valid chars for those. Nice work! Mine are here.


Oh, you're right! Welp, one mystery solved. Even nicer work - mine aren't as tight!
