Any thoughts and experience to share?


If you actually want the algorithm and not just or only the results then you should analyze the code and then rewrite it in something you are already familiar with.

Overwise is the code on a disc, online or in some otherwise electronic form? If not then do the the same as the first suggestion. Typing in the code and then figuring out what you typed wrong and how to run it in the first place will not be worth the time.

If it is in electronic and all you care about is the results then get the compiler/interpreter and the source from the book at put them altogether in one location on your home system. With lots of notes on how to run the compiler/interpreter. That way when you get busy and then come back 6 months later you don't have to start from scratch.
