Solution

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:

``````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?

• MP: Matches Played
• W: Matches Won
• D: Matches Drawn (Tied)
• L: Matches Lost
• P: Points

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

``````Allegoric Alaskans;Blithering Badgers;win
Devastating Donkeys;Courageous Californians;draw
``````

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

``````Allegoric Alaskans;Blithering Badgers;win
``````

This line:

``````Courageous Californians;Blithering Badgers;loss
``````

Means that the Blithering Badgers beat the Courageous Californians.

And this line:

``````Devastating Donkeys;Courageous Californians;draw
``````

Means that the Devastating Donkeys and Courageous Californians tied.

For installation and learning resources, refer to the Ruby resources page.

For running the tests provided, you will need the Minitest gem. Open a terminal window and run the following command to install minitest:

``````gem install minitest
``````

If you would like color output, you can `require 'minitest/pride'` in the test file, or note the alternative instruction, below, for running the test file.

Run the tests from the exercise directory using the following command:

``````ruby tournament_test.rb
``````

To include color from the command line:

``````ruby -r minitest/pride tournament_test.rb
``````
