The requirements specify that:

"Also, based on the header line, report any lines that do not have the same number of cells. (Cells are allowed to be empty.)"

The script is supposed to output the cleaned data to STDOUT. My question is, how do I report lines for a given file?

  • Should I write to a separate report file for each type if there are any?
  • Or should I write to STDERR?"

Hi Rayhan, For either program, but particularly the data-cleaning program, error messages should be printed on stderr, with all the real data going to stdout.
