>I've told you what the problem is: this is not an article: it is a blog post, at best.
Okay, I am not arguing, my point was and still is that by sharing some etude it must be useful in first place and hopefully well described where I fail to do so too many times I guess.

>Explain the why's and wherefore's of what you are doing.
See, this is a simple 20 lines C code doing the most well-known task among all general etudes - returning a 32bit value out of smoe key. I didn't want to repeat how to bake bread, just to share the source and stats on different machines in order to give the reader an idea of is it worth downloading?

I just looked at article "Sorting Algorithms In C#" by Mr. Clifton and in my humble (I am not a programmer) opinion it appears to me useless, simply it doesn't cover the most interesting and useful area of sorting - the external ones e.g. I have had some drafts in C that dealt with 1,000,000,000 keys VERY FAST, with mentioning this I just wanted to share how different opinions exist.

>Good luck.
Thank you, obviously my articles are not even articles, sorry, but blame me not - that's me, a C amateur trying to test/share interesting etudes.
Get down get down get down get it on show love and give it up
What are you waiting on?
