Advent of code, Day 10

Hi Everyone! here I show you my solution for Day 10.
It was fun and it allowed me to show an interesting programming pattern, that I do not see around very commonly: We can have a list of possible cases so that we can grow our set of available parenthesis.
In particular, in 42 we can hard code the list and then use metaprogramming at a later stage to update the list with more cases. That is, while executing a specific version of the code we can be certain of the behavior, but when we can sill extend the code behavior on need.
