I have noticed that at Codechef, Time Limit Multipliers for non-imperative languages are set to 1 by default, i.e. if we define TL to be 1 sec, then the solutions coded in Haskell/Scala/Clojure, etc, should also take 1 sec. (1x 1sec per testfile)
I believe that this feature is problem dependent and when I am setting a problem I might be able to “override” those TL multipliers for those specific languages. I am just wondering if this is really possible to do?
I am asking this because at websites like Hackerrank where functional programming contests are held, those time limits are of:
16 seconds per testcase for Scala and of 8 seconds per testcase for Haskell for example.
Can we tweak those limits when we set problems?
