Wow, 36500% faster. That's a worthwhile saving. Glad it helped. It's always good to use a geometric search rather than a linear one when you have any form of sorted data that you can use the split the dif algoritm on. The number of tries to find the desired position is given by:

print "Num items Geom avg Lin avg Lin:Geom\n"; for ( my $num_items = 2; $num_items < 2<<20; $num_items <<= 1 ) { # geometric my $geom_max = int(log($num_items)/log(2))+1; my $geom_avg = int(log(($num_items/2))/log(2))+1; # linear my $lin_max = $num_items; my $lin_avg = $num_items/2; printf "%8d %8d %8d %8d\n", $num_items, $geom_avg, $lin_avg, $lin_avg/$geom_avg; }
Should wrap it in a module one day :-)
