unfortunately, I am not able to disclose the details of the problem. But, I can tell you some general info: it was a problem that has been solved using Excel before (about one day of table manipulation for pretty simple cases), because the job consisted from doing a huge amount of data comparisons and some statistic routines. I simplified the algorithm (used more efficient formula to compute the result, while getting more accurate result at the same time) and Rebol made the task trivial ("press a button and you get the result instantly"). The tables were "represented" as follows: uzly_a: -1,00E+00 -5,00E-01 0,00E+00 1,00E+00 -5,00E-01 0,00E+00 1,00E+00 5,00E-01 0,00E+00 -1,00E+00 5,00E-01 0,00E+00 -1,00E+00 -5,00E-01 5,00E+00 -1,00E+00 5,00E-01 5,00E+00 1,00E+00 -5,00E-01 5,00E+00 1,00E+00 5,00E-01 5,00E+00 ] where the set-word represented an appropriate name for the respective table, which could be then referred to in the next part of the data description and the space was used as a delimiter (tables contained only numbers in this case).
