Hi Codeforces.

I am glad to share a small but useful update of Polygon, which was fully developed by me in the walls of ITMO. Now preparing problems with unusual I/O will become a little easier.

Now in the new problems you will get examples in the statements without any transformations by LaTeX/HTML. If earlier you had difficulties with the correct formatting of empty lines or the fact that a double hyphen is replaced with a dash, now there are no such difficulties. The enhancement works for both PDF and HTML statements.

For example, to have such I/O examples just add such a test and use the appropriate output from the model solution.

Note that the feature to overwrite the examples is stayed working (custom content of input or output data for statements). It seems that there are almost no reasons to use it for an input now (apparently, only for interactive problems).

Previously created problems use the old approach, so this innovation should not break existing problems.

How do you like the feature?

Can you please develop it so that we can prepare IOI styled problems ?

    What prevents you from doing that right now?

      I think we need a way to tag groups for each test in a programmable manner. Currently there is setGroup() function in the validator, but it is not reflected to the actual group data. This will greatly help the support on problems with subtasks. (like in IOI)

      I commented this before, but no one seemed to care back then :(
