( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I used this generator to create a 10000 string file where the first 5000 string are just randomly generated and the other 5000 are random substring extracted from the first 5000. Thus, you'd expect at most 5000 unique strings with a very slight possibility of there being fewer:

#! perl -slw use strict; sub rndStr{ join'', @_[ map{ rand $#_ } 1 .. shift ] } our $N //= 10e3; my $halfN = $N >> 1; my @data; $#data = $N; $data[ $_ ] = rndStr( 200 +int( rand 200 ), 'A', 'C', 'G', 'T', 'N' ) for 0 .. $halfN; $data[ $_ + $halfN ] = substr( $data[ $_ ], 10, 10 + int( rand( length( $data[ $_ ] ) - 20 ) ) ) for 0 .. $halfN; print for @data; __END__ C:\test> 906020-gen -N=10e3 > 906020.10e3

When I run your code on this file it misses some dups:

C:\test>906020-robo 906020.10e3 5551 unique items 4450 rejected. 5 seconds.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

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.
