Re: Efficient programming
in thread Efficient programming
OTOH, "Data dominates. If you've chosen the right data structures and organized things well, the algorithms will almost always be selfevident. Data structures, not algorithms, are central to programming." (Rob Pike Notes on Programming in C)
As for the OP, "efficient" is a buzzword. Make your programming simple, concise, clear, and correct. For some simple guidelines, try that URL I pasted above, it's the best article about programming practices I know.
