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
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:
-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
