in thread Finding Combinations of Pairs

My funny bone is often broke. In spoken conversation I have learned to pick up on many social cues when to not take something literally but it is an effort and I commonly get it wrong. Written communication is so much worse. Thanks for the pointer.

Cheers - L~R

    No worries, LR. ;)

    The key issue that I was pround of - on the efficiency stakes - was that it checked for *all* possible combinations of keywords - even those which did not exist on the same line ever. And that it went through the entire file again for every keyword-pair, i.e. processed the entire file keyword-factorial times. Now that's what I call thorough.

    The sand/and thing is a genuine, unintended bug though. :)

    All the best, andy.
