To each of these nine confusingly similar words, assign a number 1-9 in any way you like:
though through thorough Thoreau throw threw trough tough troll
Write a program that takes in a string. If the input is one of these nine words, output the number you assigned to it. If the input is not one of the words above, the program may do anything (including error or loop forever).
The words are case sensitive, e.g.
Thoreau, should produce a number from 1-9 but
thoreau will not necessarily do the same.
Suppose you assign the numbers as follows:
though 9 through 2 thorough 7 Thoreau 6 throw 3 threw 5 trough 4 tough 1 troll 8
tough is input,
1 should be output.
through is input,
2 should be output.
throw is input,
3 should be output.
. . .
though is input,
9 should be output.
All other inputs may do anything.
- Take the input string via stdin or the command line and output to stdout.
- The output may contain a single trailing newline.
- Instead of a program, you may write a function that takes in a string and prints the result normally or returns it.
- The shortest submission in bytes wins.
