There is currently a challenge to compute the determinant of a matrix. However, it was written 5 years ago, before our current quality standards were established. It falls short of those standards in several ways:
- Inflexible I/O (must be STDIN and STDOUT)
- Cumbersome I/O format (whitespace-separated input)
- Underspecified (the ring in which the matrix elements belong is unspecified - many answers make assumptions)
Most of the 8 answers are quite old. All but 2 are from 2012, shortly after the challenge was posed.
Does this challenge deserve a rewrite?
