Using Popeye for checking “single box” problems in Windows
Using Popeye consists of the following steps:
- Downloading the program
- Writing a file containing the problem(s) to be tested
- Running the program
1. Downloading the program
The latest release of Popeye can be downloaded from here.
2. Writing a file containing the problem(s) to be tested
The simplest way to tell Popeye what problem(s) to solve is to save a description of the problem(s) in a file. The py-*.doc files document the syntax of such a file. The example files contain a lot of examples.
Note: Below, links can be found to example files containing descriptions of the three example problems of section G of the WCCT. Using these files as templates is probably the easiest way to go.
3. Running the program
Open a Command prompt (also known as “DOS prompt”), go to the folder where you have placed Popeye, and then type the command
e.g. pywin32 sbex1en.inp
