[REBOL] Re: Fast way to remove all non-numerical chars from a string

From: Tom:Conlin:g:mail at: 22-Sep-2007 15:32

that is what I was seeing as well Prkr's can be speeded up with bitsets ... filter: charset "0123456789" start: now/time/precise loop 1'000'000 [remove-each char "(250) 764-0929" [not find filter char]] now/time/precise - start parse with integers! was faster than remove-each but slower than trim the trouble of including parse is you have to so something with the results and that is not being done in these speed tests so it is not really a fair comparison rule: [copy num integer!(something num) | skip] start: now/time/precise loop 1'000'000 [parse/all "(250) 764-0929"[some rule]] now/time/precise - start a better picture of what the data is really like, where is coming from going to ... would help Carl Read wrote:
