I have been practicing on TopCoder for some time and have been getting the warning about my code having more than "30% unused code".
I wanted to know a few things:
Will I be penalized if I submit my code with more than the said amount of unused code? If yes what will be the penalty?
In my case I was getting the warning because my template is a little long (35 lines in this case). But what exactly is wrong with having that big a template? Will I be penalized if I exceeded the Unused Code Limit because of my template?
I went through the TopCoder forums but couldn't get a definite answer to these questions, hence posting here.
Thanks in advance.
