In CS101, everyone writes a version of several search routines, several sorting routines, and many other common algorithms. In Chem101, you go through a number of common experiments. In a way, these are rites of passage, as well, but not the ones, I think, you're referring to.

As for wheels ...

  1. A OO representation
  2. Numerous chess-validators
  3. Alpha-Beta algorithms (back when I was messing around with a Go-playing program)
  4. PDF::Template, Excel::Template, Graph::Template ... when I could've just written plugins for TT. (I'll write them, once we convert to TT.)
  5. And the one I'm least proud of - a scheduling algorithm for a small airline company, in Pascal.

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.
