The goal of this challenge was to create a script capable of solving a simple graphical captcha. The script was to find the specified icon among a set of five and select it in a form.

A simple yet effective heuristic strategy was to count the number of black pixels within each of the icons. This number could be used to programmatically identify each icon with a sufficient accuracy.
