I believe this solution misses the point! ;-)

Nicholas Howe submitted a Comment to Problem 2390. Fair Scoring for Cody

The same regexp expression could potentially be called more than once with different dynamic code each time. It might be best to count the score of each unique code string from each separate invocation point -- that seems most in keeping with the spirit of the current rules. You're right that it would be quite complex to keep track.
Thanks for pointing out the problem with newline, by the way. I think it is fixed now.

Nicholas Howe submitted a Comment to Problem 2390. Fair Scoring for Cody

Alfonso, thank you for your excellent thinking on this subject. You're quite right that an approach based only on parsing the program text would be hard to perfect. One could at least make people work harder to get around the scoring system! But what do you think of a different approach: modifying the definitions of regexp and its ilk on the Cody machines so that they dynamically alter the score when called with eval-like arguments?
