Chu Tin Teng Wins the CC Code Challenge (Week 3)

We have a winner of last week’s CC Weekly Code Challenge, sponsored by IAR Systems! We posted a code snippet with an error and challenged the engineering community to find mistake!

Congratulations to Chu Tin Teng of Fremont, CA, for winning the CC Weekly Code Challenge for Week 3! He’ll receive a CC T-Shirt and one-year digital subscription/renewal to Circuit Cellar.

Chu’s correct answer was randomly selected from the pool of responses that correctly identified an error in the code. Chu answered:

Line 7: string comparison should use cmp, instead of <=>. New line should read as “($aa cmp $ba) || ($an <=> $bn)”.

What is the CC Weekly Code Challenge?
Each week, Circuit Cellar’s technical editors purposely insert an error in a snippet of code. It could be a semantic error, a syntax error, a design error, a spelling error, or another bug the editors slip in. You are challenged to find the error.Once the submission deadline passes, Circuit Cellar will randomly select one winner from the group of respondents who submit the correct answer.
