My cell phone carrier charges a cent per character in a text! I need a program to shorten the words for me, while still being understandable. I will be texting this program to my friends, so it needs to be as short as possible.
Your program will take a String (a word is separated by a non-alphanumeric character) of words from
STDIN (or closest alternative) reduce any similar (
A are similar,
a are not,
1 is similar only to itself) consecutive alphanumeric characters down to one character, and remove all the vowels (
aeiou), and print it to
STDOUT (or closest alternative), only letters, numbers, and spaces are kept: everything else is removed at the end. The first character of a word must remain the same, and only shorten the word if the resulting shortened word is 4 or more characters long.
homework -> hmwrk llamas -> llamas (lms<4 characters) botany -> btny y3333llow -> y3lw shorten -> shrtn aabcddde -> abcd abb'bbc -> abbbbc (abb -> abb and bbc -> bbc = abb'bbc --(remove non-alphanumeric-space characters)-> abbbbc) SHARRRKnado -> shrknd (or with capitalization bonus: SHrKnd) abracadabra -> abrcdbr everything is awesome! -> evrythng is awsm you can't break what is already broken -> you cant break what is alrdy brkn the person's cat's bed's blanket's poka-dots are orangy-yellow -> the prsns cats beds blnkts pokadots are orngyyellow
-5% bonus if kept
a i o or
u at end of word
sharknado -> shrkndo abracadabra -> abrcdbra
-10% bonus if kept capitalization of non-consecutive characters
aAbCDdDE -> abCd
This is code-golf so the shortest program in bytes wins.
