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.

Submitting Exercises

Note that, when trying to submit an exercise, make sure the solution is in the exercism/python/<exerciseName> directory.

For example, if you're submitting bob.py for the Bob exercise, the submit command would be something like exercism submit <path_to_exercism_dir>/python/bob/bob.py.

For more detailed information about running tests, code style and linting, please see the help page.
