A tool for evaluating elections using Single Transferable Vote.
good_stv expects to receive CSV-formatted data, either on stdin or a file. The only required argument is a positive integer representing the number of seats to fill in the election. Example invocations are:
$ good_stv -f test.csv 3
$ good_stv 3 < test.csv
The input data is expected to be in the following format:
One (1) header line, with a list of candidates to be elected, in any order. This is followed by any number of body lines, each containing a list of candidates, in order of preference from highest to lowest, left to right, representing a single vote. Any candidates listed in the body who are not also in the header will be ignored. Each vote does not need to include every candidate, although votes listing zero (0) candidates will be ignored.
