Riddle time

No googling/cheating. Brian asked me this and I gave up real quick. His form teacher was game enough to give it a go but didn't get the right answer, pretty close but still wrong.

You are trapped in an old building. All the doors are locked and the nearest window is 10 feet above you. All you have is a 10-foot licorice rope and a piece of metal. How do you get out?

Make a bomb out of the licorice rope and metal???
Eat the licorice and use the metal to carve out the number of days in captivity onto the wall?

I don't know!
Pray tell!!!

Hee hee, I knew you'd be game to try PP. I really have no patience, will immediately say I dunno, tell me the answer! Brian's guess was pretty ridiculous too, I'll have to ask him when he gets back from school what it was.

1. The old building is dilapidated and now only left with rickety wood, so you use the metal to hack down part of the wall???
2. You tie the rope to the metal and lasso it out of the window to climb out?

haha... i really don't know and I am really bad with riddles...
