[REBOL] Re: New competition: do you accept the challenge?! :-)

From: moliad:g:mail at: 7-Nov-2007 21:19

is anyone realising that every one is being smart, but just a few of you guys are right? hehe alessandro wanted to get the SAME algorythm... I'm sure if we did the same kind of optimisations by changing the algorythm, in any language it would also scale in speed :-) as allesandro said, only if we have the same algorythm, do the test mean anything. or only if rebol had such a different paradigm that expressing the algorythm was a one liner. such as when we read a web site extract tags and save to a file (a one liner!) which takes a full page of code in most languages. I want to do a parse version of the whole algorythm (like I did with another challenge recently, where my submission shrank the code size by more than half), I just haven't had time. I do not expect it to be any faster, but seeing that whole algorythm within a few lines would be cool to see. -MAx
