Favorite Color

November 11, 2014

A text file consists of records with fields. Each field is a name/value record of the form name: value with the field name followed by a colon, a space, and the value. Records consist of one or more fields separated by a blank line. In a particular database one field is named favoritecolor.

Your task is to write a program that determines the maximal favorite color; in other words, what color is named the most times as the favorite color. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
