Sorry, forgot that rule.

Excuse me…

Already the punch line is told before

so, my source code, putting here(below) is no spoiling?

With the source, I’m in troubled of Syntax Errors.
the code is of C-language-thinking of mine,

and casting problems about…
Char|Symbol, String, Array or REGEXP-escape,
and Scope of variables

It maybe another Quiz…

-----source follows-----

#!/usr/bin/env ruby -Ku

#Oh, by the way… You may only use the characters ?, *, (, )
and -.
#Specifically, define a function symbolify that accepts an integer
#and returns a string composed of only the five characters shown above.
#The string, when evaluated, will equal the original number passed in.

def init
str = ‘:?:*:(:):-’
5.times { |i|
letters[i] = str[i]
end #init

def symb1(i)
s = “”
p = i / 5

p = (i.abs) / 5

unless p < 1
q = i.mod(5)

s += letters(q)

def symbolify(i)
letters = []

puts i



puts symbolify(ARGV[1].to_i)

Yes(no?) it’s not only out of work but
also off-track to the context of the quiz,
I’m realizing.

I’d well review solutions of others and regenerate mine
