This question was closed as a dupe of this other question by the gold vote of Leaky Nun. And yes, I'd agree they're mostly dupes of one another.

However, the newer question is closer to what we'd expect now, and the older version has a more cumbersome I/O format, not to mention only six answers.

This Meta post says we should raise a meta question about it, so that's what this is.

(note that I don't care that I already answered the new question)

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't want to discourage insightful discussion, but posting a Meta question this quickly might be jumping the gun. So far only one user has voted to close, that user may be a gold user but its only one user. We ought to wait until there is a clear tension before bringing it to the meta. (I also unhammered the question so we'll see) \$\endgroup\$ – Ad Hoc Garf Hunter Dec 12 '17 at 23:29

    \$\begingroup\$ @WheatWizard yeah, you're right, I really meant this to be a question about closing the older question as a dupe but my brain appears to not be working any longer. \$\endgroup\$ – Giuseppe Dec 12 '17 at 23:53
