The deadline for Ticklet 0 is Monday 13th October at 5pm.

Workbook and test suite

Workbook Errata

The printed workbooks contain (at the very least!) the following errors. Errors are indexed by workbook (W), page (P) and line (L), which may be negative, indicating that the reader should count upwards from the bottom of the page. These errors have been corrected in the on-line versions of the workbooks shown above. If you find any further errors, please email ticks1b-admin[at]

No errors have been reported so far this year.


For the Ticklet 0 exercise the top ten implementations which have been tested by the deadline are awarded a star. We've seen timing variations between repeated tests of the same submission, so stars are also given to solutions which are within 3 seconds of the 10th ranked implementation.

The current leaderboard, which includes submissions after the deadline, is as follows:
