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 the mistake!

Congratulations to Carl Hage of California, USA for winning the CC Weekly Code Challenge for Week 14! Carl will receive an IAR Kickstart: KSK-STM32F407ZG kit.

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

Line 11: Need + int($year/400) not – int($year/400)

Tech Note: it’s perfectly legitimate in Perl to have a “bare” expression as the last line of a subroutine — the default return value from any function (if there’s no explicit “return” statement) is the value of the last expression evaluated.
