Thank you for your interpratation. :D I knew what he was trying to say, but in this instance he was wrong. I was measuring each of those functions against a pool of random numbers, where they would each encounter the same set, including duplicates. So, the script was written as I thought is should be to accomplish my goal.
I always enjoy peeking around here reading the insights presented to everyone's code, even such comments which may not be directly relevant, but target the improving of one's coding skills. But, sometimes a question of what is the goal of the program can be more educational for both sides.
As always, comments and opinions are appreciated.
