The hash trick is a nice way if the array is small enough. for huge arrays the algorhitmical/runtime trade may be worth the price to save memory.

    Sure... if memory is so tight that you have to choose an O(n * m) time complexity over O(n + m) then I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Of course, in that case (and especially if this is a routine task) you are almost certainly going to win by throwing more RAM at the problem because the larger your dataset the more (time) you are saving with the linear algorithm.

    Update: Also note that the additional memory you need will be relative to the smaller of your two arrays. (As a possible optimization depending, of course, on your data.)

[marto]: Eily you can't remote connect the physical device via USB ;)
[Corion]: Eily: Sure, that's what I do, but some things you need to do on the Android device directly, like when navigating the bootloader :-)
[Eily]: marto you just need a longer cable :P
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, but I'm somewhat wary of installing random USB drivers downloaded from , Google Drive or whatever, so Linux wins there due to there being no conflicts and me just having to edit one text file in the worst case, to add the USB vendor
[hippo]: Long USB cable FTW.
[Corion]: Eily: I've thought of that, but I don't like running long cables through the appartment because sooner or later I'll trip over it, pulling at least one device off its stand :)
[marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
[Corion]: marto: Heh - it seems that they plan to keep the links alive for a long time. But still, I plan on moving PM to use/generate the new links
[Corion]: And I think it's better to generate links to the new world instead of keeping the older links alive by generating new versions of them ;)
[marto]: yeah, I guess it's supposed to be a permanent redirect, but better to make the move where possible
