Robot Simulator

Write a robot simulator.

A robot factory's test facility needs a program to verify robot movements.

The robots have three possible movements:

Robots are placed on a hypothetical infinite grid, facing a particular direction (north, east, south, or west) at a set of {x,y} coordinates, e.g., {3,8}, with coordinates increasing to the north and east.

The robot then receives a number of instructions, at which point the testing facility verifies the robot's new position, and in which direction it is pointing.

Setup

Go through the setup instructions for JavaScript to install the necessary dependencies:

Running the test suite

The provided test suite uses Jasmine. You can install it by opening a terminal window and running the following command:

1
npm install -g jasmine

Run the test suite from the exercise directory with:

1
jasmine robot-simulator.spec.js

In many test suites all but the first test have been marked "pending". Once you get a test passing, activate the next one by changing xit to it.
