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

Hi Laurent,

Thank you, for your caching algorithm. It has kept me busy after hours. I added Step 4 for less caching. Basically, commenting 2 lines.

I updated my posts here and here.

sub collatz_seq { my $input = shift; my $n = $input; my $result = 0; my $new_n; while ($n != 1) { $result += $cache[$n], last if defined $cache[$n]; $n % 2 ? ( $result += 2, $new_n = (3 * $n + 1) >> 1 ) : ( $result += 1, $new_n = $n >> 1 ); # $cache[$n] = $cache[$new_n] + ($n % 2 ? 2 : 1) # if defined $cache[$new_n] and $n < $max; $n = $new_n; } $cache[$input] = $result if $input < $max; return $result; }

A new member collatz3_e was added to the list.

# Intel i7 laptop, Docker Container, Ubuntu + Perlbrew Perl 5.30.1 collatz3_a.pl 1e7 32.291s (a) original, accepts argument collatz3_b.pl 1e7 30.134s (b) a + replaced division with >> 1 collatz3_c.pl 1e7 28.503s (c) b + removed 1 level of branching collatz3_d.pl 1e7 21.464s (d) c + reduced loop iterations collatz3_e.pl 1e7 19.357s (e) d + caching less # AMD 3970x, Docker Container, Ubuntu + Perlbrew Perl 5.30.1 collatz3_a.pl 1e7 13.130s (a) original, accepts argument collatz3_b.pl 1e7 12.394s (b) a + replaced division with >> 1 collatz3_c.pl 1e7 12.261s (c) b + removed 1 level of branching collatz3_d.pl 1e7 9.170s (d) c + reduced loop iterations collatz3_e.pl 1e7 7.681s (e) d + caching less

The 32-core machine reaches below 0.5 seconds for size 1e7. That includes the time to launch Perl, load modules, spin up and reap workers.

The Collatz Conjenture took over me. And finally am able to move on.

Kind regards, Mario

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.
