[REBOL] RFE: complexity documentation/language spec

From: chris::starforge::co::uk at: 16-Apr-2001 10:29

Hi, I'm just finishing off one of the largest REBOL script suites I've ever attempted (more on that soon... ) and I am going through it to make sure everything is as optimal as possible. Looking back over the implementation and my current review I've found that I have had to rely on a lot of guesswork about the efficiency and time complexity of REBOL datatypes and functions. My hoster is very strict about the resource usage of cgi scripts, and the data the scripts are handling could grow to a considerable size so efficiency is needed. While I wouldn't want to ask RT to give away REBOL code (I wish ;)) I think a document giving at least an overview of the algorithms or structures each datatype or important function uses would be invaluable for those of us pushing the performance of REBOL.
