Solution

#### Note:

This solution was written on an old version of Exercism. The tests below might not correspond to the solution code, and the exercise may have changed since this code was written.

There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

You and your fellow cohort of those in the "know" when it comes to binary decide to come up with a secret "handshake".

``````1 = wink
1000 = jump

10000 = Reverse the order of the operations in the secret handshake.
``````

Given a decimal number, convert it to the appropriate sequence of events for a secret handshake.

Here's a couple of examples:

Given the input 3, the function would return the array ["wink", "double blink"] because 3 is 11 in binary.

Given the input 19, the function would return the array ["double blink", "wink"] because 19 is 10011 in binary. Notice that the addition of 16 (10000 in binary) has caused the array to be reversed.

## Setup

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

http://exercism.io/languages/javascript/installation

## Running the test suite

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

``````npm install -g jasmine
``````

Run the test suite from the exercise directory with:

``````jasmine secret-handshake.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`.
