This is a great series of articles and he openly invites insights
from Ruby Gurus reading along. Bring your thinking caps!

Thanks for sharing Pit.

I sent Ron the following two files to Ron a couple of days ago, and
received a nice reply.

This quick-and-dirty implementation only uses an Array to store
objects. Ron pointed out that it will be much more interesting if the
objects were stored in files, perhaps mapping objects to things like
fixed-length records.

Nice implementation, Jim! I’m curious about Ron’s final solution.

Pit

Thanks for posting the link, Pit.

XST is a topic that has been interesting to me for a long time … over
the
years I’ve done a number of products based on it.

It’s an interesting technology and for some reason I felt like taking a
different cut at it. I’m not sure where I’ll go with it at this point,
but I’m
trying to take an approach that’s more in line with the pure math of it
all.

Readers are welcome, and I welcome email advice on how it’s going. Be
sure to
include [ron] in the subject of any emails, to be sure of sneaking
through my
spam filters.

Pit has already sorted me out to help me get back up to speed on Ruby
… I’ve
been away from it for a few years now, and glad to be back.

Thanks,

R
