Re: Renaming the Schwartzian Transform
in thread Renaming the Schwartzian Transform
I do not credit, however, the discovery of this way of sorting records to the man with the name. I have found myself doing things this way long before I arrived at perlmonks.
The Schwartzian Transform was named Schwartzian Transform many years before Perlmonks even existed. Lore goes that the name was given by Randals arch nemesis, Tom Christiansen. Oldest reference to 'Schwartzian Transform' I could find using Google groups dates from 1995: <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
