Re^12: What makes an array sorted and a hash unsorted? (nit)by BrowserUk (Pope)

Woe! A non-pedantic counter-argument. I wasn't expecting that. But then, nobody expects....
And you are, as usual, correct.
I could argue that "knowledge of the algorithm" covers it, but in truth, I hadn't even considered it :)
But then again, I did say:
the iteration order of hashes, (also unspecified), is defined, (as a matter of practicality), to be the simplest or most efficient, (which are often the same thing), order of traversal of the data-structures underlying the implementation.
which absolutlely does cover it. So, halvsies :)
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
