The argument name shadows a built in library in Python
Forcing the user to type in the whole table (or searching for it as a textual data, and normalizing to be usable) is an absolutely terrible design choice. The thing must be preloaded.
People are so unhappy about the "duplicate" messages, as if preventing bad content from getting out of beta is a crime...
Anyway, here's a link to an identical kata which was approved long ago ;)
Duplicate of what? At least you should point out an example ;-)
ok just wondered
No, katas are retired when they're too poor in quality and/or they're complete duplicates.
Just out of interest, this kata is still in beta even though it hasnt been discussed or updated recently, should it not be retired?
There are already plenty of factorial katas published.
Test.expect doesn't give information about the actual and expected values.
There is no test for negative values, the instrucions are confusing about this point, it tells the input will always be positive and then it says what to do if it's negative.
Returning different data types is not a good practice.
I admit, it's not a great kata. Better of spending your time on others, unless you feel like typing up a tedious chart.
Making us pull over a whole chart from another website is fake difficulty.
Why not just provide a preloaded chart?
very good to use linq for an 8kyu difficulty in my opinion
All done, thanks for the heads-up :)
