Two functions f and g are provided as inputs to checkio . The first function f is the primary function and the second function g is the backup. Use your coding skills to return a third function h which returns the same output as f unless f raises an exception or returns None . In this case h should return the same output as g . If both f and g raise exceptions or return None , then h should return None .

As a second output, h should return a status string indicating whether the function values are the same and if either function erred. A function errs if it raises an exception or returns a null value ( None ).

The status string should be set to: "same" if f and g return the same output and neither errs, "different" if f and g return different outputs and neither errs, "f_error" if f errs but not g , "g_error" if ...
