Well, in the case of suffix arrays, it's not the coding in C that makes it difficult or time consuming, the algorithms are quite complicated. The speedup you gain by using clever techniques and efficient data structures isn't in the range of 2,4 or 8, it is in the thousands. For example I know that if you'd use a simple qsort() for the suffix array sorting, you would need weeks for a human chromosome compared to minutes the guys need here.

You could also see it the other way: if you use C and maybe OpenMP, then the simple to implement, naive algorithms might be already fast enough.

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