RRobots (#59)


#1

Here’s my robot solution. I still have some problems that I couldn’t
quite figure out. I’m hoping that by looking through some of the other
solutions I’ll be able to figure them out. It does a pretty good job of
avoiding, but linear targeting wasn’t working, so I commented it out.
Ok, Thanks for the quiz, I keep learning!
