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.

Running the tests

To run the tests run the command go test from within the exercise directory.

If the test suite contains benchmarks, you can run these with the -bench flag:

1
go test -bench .

Keep in mind that each reviewer will run benchmarks on a different machine, with different specs, so the results from these benchmark tests may vary.
