For this problem, in which the known solution-space is constrained to what can fit into a reasonably sized hash and in which the total number of records and data-streams also fits into memory ... a memory-based solution works just fine,

Ignoring the silly bit about "records and data-streams" fitting in memory. Exactly!

My mother had a brilliant solution to the problem of grease stains on carpets that involved brown paper and an iron; but you don't see me trotting out here at random.

there is utterly no reason to trundle out n-digit numbers to “prove” your point.

Beg to differ. There was a reason.

Your continued insistence to trot out the description of something that might prove to be a suitable to solution to some other problem at some other place and time gave me that reason.

I was really, really hoping that in this case you wouldn’t rush out once again to prove how smart you are. Let alone, as so many times before, publicly and at my expense.

The only smarts involved, is your exhibited lack thereof in posting inappropriate solutions to questions.

The only expense involved, is the time wasted by recipients of your "wisdoms", as they chase down blind alleys following them.

Enough.

We found something we can agree on.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
