[REBOL] Interleaving of strings question Re:

From: lmecir:geocities at: 26-Sep-2000 0:21

Hi, although your question has a little in common with Rebol, my answers are as follows: 1. It would be more precise to interleave each bit - ie. each binary digit - as the smallest unit of information 2. in that case the bit - sort yields: [0,0 2,2 1,5 5,1] 3. as you pointed out, the result of the sort doesn't depend on the representation, but on the comparison function, any suitable representation can do 4. your suggestion doesn't work, because you need close things in the terms of distance to remain close in the terms of sort. Your suggestion works only in the neighborhood of the 0,0 point Best regards Ladislav
