[RC Diary] Interpreter (-38)
I am studying an interpreter written in Scheme and meanwhile writing a blog post about the experience.
I am going to talk about beauty referred to computer programs, specifically about Lisp. There might be errors as this is something I wrote to make sense of that interpreter, proceed at your own risk.
Real and fake. The more I attend interviews the more I realise how useless they are: sometimes it just feels like you have an hour with your interviewer and you have to fill it somehow with professional questions.
I am really getting lazy with these diary posts recently. Damn.
I find that being at a whiteboard completely changes my approach to the problem:
I've spent most of the day going through this exercise, or better, through this last edge case of this exercise. Basically hackerrank.com runs your code against a set of tests, but it just tells you when you fail a test, without giving either inputs or outputs.
