in reply to Fastest Rising Monks - Revisited

Well, I see a table, but it's not quite clear to me what the columns mean. The first column indicates a rank, but where is it sorted on? The 'monk' and 'XP' are clear, but what does 'Total' stand for? Is 'higher' a column that indicates the number of monks that have joined later than the column of that row, but with more XP? And what does the Percent column mean?

Abigail,
Sorry - the columns made sense to me when I was coding it.
• The total column is the number of monks that joined after you.
• The higher column is the number of those monks with more XP.
• The percent column is the (higher / total) * 100
• Sorting is by percentage first, then by XP.

Cheers - L~R

 Tanktalus is trying to figure out how to get a case-insensitive match between straße and strasse to return true in perl :( fc doesn't seem to do it, either, unless I'm doing it wrong. [LanX]: ß,ss [LanX]: nope [LanX]: /.*(?:ß|ss).*/ [hippo]: How are you doing the match? Regex, index, eq or something else? [choroba]: fc \$s1 eq fc \$s2 I guess [Tanktalus]: hippo: I don't care, I just want to prove it can match correctly compared to, say, ILIKE / UPPER / LOWER in postgres :)
