It's been a while since I've seen a programming puzzle in this group. Of course, I could have missed any number of them. Here is one. Given a parameterized curve in the plane--- the x and y coordinates are each functions of a parameter--- reparameterize the curve by arc length. My approach was really quite interesting, and other people will likely have even more interesting ideas. Will Self Montana
