# Problem

Given an input a where a is a truthy/falsy value output the exact impossible cube below if truthy and the exact normal cube below if falsey.

Input truthy:

# Rules

• Trailing whitespace allowed.
• Trailing newlines allowed.
• truthy/falsey values may be swapped (truthy for real cube and falsey for impossible cube)
• Input style should be specified
• Shortest code in bytes wins
• Do we need to output that exact cube or any impossible cube? Jun 21, 2017 at 12:00
• @dzaima the exact cube. Jun 21, 2017 at 12:00
• At first glance, I thought the input was the ASCII art. sigh of relief Jun 21, 2017 at 12:51
• @Arnauld that would end up being pretty trivial, because you could just look at one character at a specific location and tell the two apart.
Jun 21, 2017 at 13:06
• @JarkoDubbeldam True. What I had in mind was more like "take any similar input of any size and figure out whether the cube is valid or not". Jun 21, 2017 at 13:11

### How?

103 bytes are a 101 digit base 250 number, which is a base-8 compression of a possible cube, with trailing spaces added to equalise the row-lengths, without new lines, and without 18 characters from the middle of each row, like this, but without newlines:

         _________________
/ _____________  /|
/ / ___________/ / |
/ / /| |       / /  |
/ / / | |      / /   |
/ / /| | |     / / /| |
/ / / | | |    / / / | |
/ / /  | | |   / / /| | |
/ /_/___|_|_|__/ / / | | |
/________________/ /  | | |
| ______________ | |  | | |
| | |    | | |_| | |__| | |
| | |    | |___| | |____| |
| | |   / / ___| | |_  / /
| | |  / / /   | | |/ / /
| | | / / /    | | | / /
| | |/ / /     | | |/ /
| | | / /      | |   /
| | |/_/_______| |  /
| |____________| | /
|________________|/


The 8 base-8 digits represent the strings of characters:

1      2    3    4    5    6        7        0
"   ", "_", "/", " ", "|", "/ / /", "| | |", "_____"


So the compression is then like the below where 1s, 6s, 7s and 0s are to be replaced by the strings shown above:

111000__111/ 00___  /|11 / / 00_/ / |116| |11 / /  |1  6 | |11/ /1|1 671  6| |16 71 6 | |  6  7167 6___|_|_|__6 7/000_/ /  7| 00____ | |  771 7_7__771 | |___7____| |71/ / ___7_  / / 7  6176  7 61 7 / /1761  7/ /1 7 / /11| |1/1  7/_/0__| |  /11| |00__| | /11 |000_|/11


The program reverses the process and changes the characters that need changing if the cube should be an impossible one:

“ _/ |/|”;€⁶;”_ṁ"“¡ẇḞ6’D¤ṃ@“ ... ’Fs27Ç¹⁸?x€15¦€19Y  Main link: V
...splitting this up...
“ _/ |/|”;€⁶;”_ṁ"“¡ẇḞ6’D¤ - make the list of strings of characters
“ _/ |/|”                 - list of characters = " _/ |/|"
⁶              - literal space character
;€               - concatenate €ach -> ["  ","_ ","/ ","  ","| ","/ ","| "]
”_           - literal = '_'
;             - concatenate -> ["  ","_ ","/ ","  ","| ","/ ","| ", '_']
“¡ẇḞ6’   -   base 250 literal = 31111555

ṃ@            - base decompression with swapped @rguments
F    - flatten (because the digit values we are using are actually lists)
s27 - split into chunks of length 27 (into the rows)

...Ç¹⁸?x€15¦€19Y - make "impossible" if need be, add the row middles and output

¹            - ...else: identity (do nothing)
€    - for €ach
¦       - apply sparsely:
15        - ...to index: 15
x€    19    - ...this: repeat €ach nineteen times
Y - join with newlines
- implicit print

ḣ9;⁾| ṁ5¤oµ€“µ½¿‘¦  Link 1, replace characters to make impossible: rows

;                     concatenate
o              logical or (vectorises) with the row
(which has the effect of appending the rest of the row)

This program stores the line data as 3 separate base 36-46 numbers and decodes each and žs the values in the main array.
Because of the abusive way of how I draw the diagonal lines, the output has 27 lines of lines with spaces (which is allowed by the OP)

input:
0 - impossible
1 - possible

Explanation:

The first line is basically a substitute ⁰ with ─3n{_

ā                   push an empty array (the canvas for the whole cube)
"...“              pushes 29714643711764388252557994982458231735529743027583646902

3n{     }  for each group of 3 numbers do (where the numbers are X, Y, length)
_         put all the contents on the stack (in the order X, Y, length)
_*      get POP amount of underscores
ž     in the canvas at the positions x;y (the position of the 1st char, 1-indexed) put the underscores

a                 push the variable A

X                remove the variable A off of the stack
"≥YΤ%‘          push "|_|_|__________"
5n        chop that into an array of strings of length 5
L9ž  at positions 10;9 insert the top of stack (either the ["| | |","| | |","| | |"] or ["|_|_|","_____","","_____"]) in the canvas


• How does it change based on input? Jun 21, 2017 at 15:05
• 0 - impossible, 1 - possible Jun 21, 2017 at 15:09
• Shouldn't an input of 1 result in the same output as other truthy inputs like "test"? Jun 21, 2017 at 16:01
• @JonathanAllan should it? In SOGL a truthy number input is a non-0 number. Typing test in the input box results to an error. If its that big of a problem I could just make it take string input where "" would be falsy and everything else truthy Jun 21, 2017 at 16:04
• Oh right, I guess if the language is strongly typed then handling any type of input may be out of scope. Jun 21, 2017 at 16:07
