Canadian Computing Competition: 2002 Stage 1, Junior #2
Americans spell differently from Canadians. Americans write
color while Canadians write
Write a program to help Americans translate to Canadian.
Your program should interact with the user in the following way. The
user should type a word (not to exceed 64 letters) and if the word
appears to use American spelling, the program should echo the Canadian
spelling for the same word. If the word does not appear to use American
spelling, it should be output without change. When the user types
quit! the program should terminate.
The rules for detecting American spelling are quite naive: If the word
has more than four letters and has a suffix consisting of a consonant
or, you may assume it is an American spelling, and that
the equivalent Canadian spelling replaces the
our. Note : you
should treat the letter
y as a vowel.
