Re: Numeric Maze (#60)

The code is ugly, please turn down the light:

This was already true with the original (my) code
but is so annoying now that I would like to recommend:

Don’t do that at home!

If you realy, realy need the additional 20% speed up
try to implement a clean C extension instead of abuse
ruby in such a way. (you will probably get a lot more
than 20%)

I know this was more like sport than the real life,
all I want to say is: this is not how ruby should
look like.

cheers

Yeah, I have to agree. The algorithm is generally the biggest change
you can make and worth doing in any language, but benchmarking
specific syntax is going too far, I think. Ruby is right when it’s
expressive, clear, and fast enough, in my opinion.
