Tournament

Tally the results of a small football competition.

Based on an input file containing which team played against which and what the outcome was, create a file with a table like this:

1
2
3
4
5
Team                           | MP |  W |  D |  L |  P
Devastating Donkeys            |  3 |  2 |  1 |  0 |  7
Allegoric Alaskans             |  3 |  2 |  0 |  1 |  6
Blithering Badgers             |  3 |  1 |  0 |  2 |  3
Courageous Californians        |  3 |  0 |  1 |  2 |  1

What do those abbreviations mean?

A win earns a team 3 points. A draw earns 1. A loss earns 0.

The outcome should be ordered by points, descending. In case of a tie, teams are ordered alphabetically.

###

Input

Your tallying program will receive input that looks like:

1
2
3
4
5
6
Allegoric Alaskans;Blithering Badgers;win
Devastating Donkeys;Courageous Californians;draw
Devastating Donkeys;Allegoric Alaskans;win
Courageous Californians;Blithering Badgers;loss
Blithering Badgers;Devastating Donkeys;loss
Allegoric Alaskans;Courageous Californians;win

The result of the match refers to the first team listed. So this line

1
Allegoric Alaskans;Blithering Badgers;win

Means that the Allegoric Alaskans beat the Blithering Badgers.

This line:

1
Courageous Californians;Blithering Badgers;loss

Means that the Blithering Badgers beat the Courageous Californians.

And this line:

1
Devastating Donkeys;Courageous Californians;draw

Means that the Devastating Donkeys and Courageous Californians tied.

Formatting the output is easy with String's padding functions. All number columns can be left-padded with spaces to a width of 2 characters, while the team name column can be right-padded with spaces to a width of 30.

Running tests

Execute the tests with:

1
$ elixir bob_test.exs

(Replace bob_test.exs with the name of the test file.)

Pending tests

In the test suites, all but the first test have been skipped.

Once you get a test passing, you can unskip the next one by commenting out the relevant @tag :pending with a # symbol.

For example:

1
2
3
4
# @tag :pending
test "shouting" do
  assert Bob.hey("WATCH OUT!") == "Whoa, chill out!"
end

Or, you can enable all the tests by commenting out the ExUnit.configure line in the test suite.

1
# ExUnit.configure exclude: :pending, trace: true
