in reply to Quantum::Superpositions for comparing lists, set operations, etc
in thread Favourite modules April 2003

I've known about Q::S for a long time, but I always thought it's a joke (and inefficiently implemented) that TheDamian forgot to put inside the Acme namespace :) (Don't know where I got that impression). However, I happily admit that I was wrong -- there is quite a number of articles and nodes about Q::S now that show its usefulness. It was only today that Randal posted a link showing how to win football bets all the time using Q::S :).

Also, recent versions seem to be rather efficient. I haven't looked at the source yet, but I assume that it's more efficient and better debugged than anything I'd quickly hack together if I were in the need for it.

    Well, one should realize people were releasing (joke) modules before someone came up with the Acme:: namespace.

      Just for the record: Quantum::Superpositions was never meant to be a joke. Neither, for that matter, was Lingua::Romana::Perligata.

      In fact, I inaugurated the Acme:: namespace (with Acme::Bleach) specifically so that people could tell when I was kidding and when I was serious.

      ;-)

    I thought that it is aimed at computing scientists to test new algorithms for factoring large numbers.
