[Here are more test cases.] - Sep 7. Edit Step Ladders

Here is the sample input from the problem statement.

Here is a little bit longer word list to try.

Here is a much longer word list (about 13,000) to try. I have no idea what the longest possible ladder is.Here is test input for the subproblem of checking if two words are connected by one step.

The output should be true, false, true, true, false, true, true, true, true.Here is test input for the subproblem of checking if there is a step ladder from the first to the second.

The output should be true, true, false, true, true. - Sep 14. We had two (vaguely similar) problems today. The easier one
is Ant on a Chessboard. The harder one is
Bee Maja, both from the online judging site
http://uva.onlinejudge.org/.
- Sep 21. We had two computational geometry problems today. One
is Touching Sticks. The other is
Bisecting Quadrilaterals from the 2012 North Central Regional contest.

Here's the sample input for the Quadrilateral problem. Input for the other is in the write-up.

Here's more sample input for the Quadrilateral problem and the corresponding sample output. - Sep 28. This week we're working on two problems from the
ACM-ICPC Live Archive website.

One is Making Jumps and the other is Going Home. (Here are the direct links to the problem pages at the archive: Making Jumps, Going Home) - Sep 28. This week we're working on two problems from the
