I made the assumption that it'd either be space + 3 digits or 3 digits
+ space - but I should've included a trim just to be sure in case
there was the occasional leading space missing. The important thing
though is that Louis has a good few routines to tweek now. He could
change the format of the code to anything he wished and easily modify
these to suit.
As to the degradation - I wouldn't know what causes that. I've
detected garbage collection with previous speed tests, but never a
general slowdown over time.
