Saving Endo!

Over the past 47 hours we have been transforming this image:

into this image:

This year's ICFP task is to save the alien Endo who has crash landed on Earth by morphing him to stand a better chance of survival in this unfamiliar environment. We are given his DNA which for the purposes of the problem draws the image on top. Our task is to prepend DNA to get the bottom image. The full problem description can be read here.

On Friday we jumped into the top 20 and have remained their since. Other than that I shall refrain from discussing our results as the contest is still underway for another 25 hours.

Go United Coding Team!

PS: Thanks Bruce, without you we would still be interpreting the meaning of the DNA. :)
