Suppose a challenger submits a code-golf challenge to do a particular task, together with test inputs. (That is, they've determined that, in order to be convinced that the code in an answer correctly performs that task, it must do the right thing when given each of those test inputs.) How should a challenger judge the code in an answer, if that code is so slow that attempts to run it on some of those test inputs times out?
I'm wondering how to judge this answer.
I see that questions were asked on meta some years ago, Can code-golf answers be too slow? and May they take a very long time?. I don't see that there's any such thing as "too slow for golf". Yes, it's allowed. My problem is how to judge code that takes too much time to verify.
