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

Okay. From this post I think that my original post did not explain the method I was trying to outline very well. Also, looking back at itubs reply, he also seems not to have fully understood what I was getting at.

I've put together a crude simulation using some randomly generated data, and it seems that using my method will process: 10,000 atoms, in around 17 seconds using < 6 MB memory. 20,000 atoms, in around 112 seconds using < 11 MB 30,000 atoms, in around 350 seconds using < 14 MB.

From these crude tests, I think it would handle 100,000 atoms in around 2 1/2 hours using 40 MB ram.

Update Ignore the figures above. I discovered a stupidity in my testcase that meant I was doing way more work than I needed to. I can now processing 100,000 atoms using 50MB in under 4 minutes.

This is without any attempt to really optimise things. I have no real feel for how this compares with other methods as I don't know what other methods are used.

I don't know for sure that I am processing the data correctly.

If you have a smallish (1000 or 2000 atom) dataset (with the desired results for a specified cutoff), that you could make available to me somehow?

Posting this here is probably not a good idea:), but I could let you have my email id.

Then I could see if what I am doing even approximates to giving correct results before I go posting triumphantly.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
