Considering you don’t have any docstrings, help messages or explanation… I don’t think it would pass a final review.

Generally code that has at least basic docstrings for non-obvious methods/files is a bit easier to look at / review.

This is the last time I can ask for a review of my code to make me a better programmer, that’s what I mean by a “final review” before I have to focus on Java and JavaScript. So I can’t spend any more time in my code. Thanks to all of you!
