Found it!

Perhaps you meant 'grep' instead of 'map' ?? ;->

This gives a different result set then mine (larger in every case), but this could be a problem with my code...

It is faster, untill the sets become a teeny weeny bit bigger (eg: +5M lines)

    Yes, grep is the correct operator, not map. See - I did bork my code. :-)

    As for the +5M lines thing - that becomes a function of your available RAM. Your string solution will hit the same limit, but at around 20-30M (if 5M is your limit with hashes).

    Note, your code to build the hash string will bomb faster than your code to iterate through it because you use foreach instead of while to iterate through the list. This creates a copy of the list you're foreach'ing through whereas while does not.


    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

[Corion]: Oh yay. Thanks to The New Firefox, my irc client ChatZilla doesn't work anymore either... So I'll have to keep an old FF around just for that...
[Corion]: 100% of my FF add-ons are unsupported currently. Maybe upgrading Firefox wasn't such a good idea after all ;)
[Corion]: Also suffering is my 2-factor Github sign-in, as now, FF can't read my USB token anymore. "This was a horrible idea" is slowly dawning on me ;)
