    hardware-independent algos don't exist in our furious & crafty World You can develop quite portable thing, but performance will be very shy.

    At an algorithm forum a certain ability to reason in the abstract is expected,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstraction

    Otherwise you risk coming across as a rambling nutcase and no one will listen. Especially if you also use opaque almost incomprehensible language.

    programmer must understand the limits of abstraction clearly, otherwise it's impossible to develop efficient algorithms. i think you can recall an example or two, where algos of equal mathematical complexity run at very different speeds.

    No need to worry. Most programmers understand that computational complexity and runtime speed are efficiency measures at different levels of abstraction, and although there is a correlation between them, one doesn't translate directly into the other.

    With that set aside I hope you may now be able to give a more to the point reply to sanchez_masherano's post #15. Good luck.

    i don't know hardware-independent algos even java codes, js, php.. are only theoretically portable things.

    It's considered bad manners to hijack other people's threads.

    yes, it's bad, but something says me that Topic Starter has solved his question + i don't know what else can be said on topic. i think it may be only the cadging to write a code from scratch. anyway, i'm done -- there's been rather curious algo i wanna complete.
