I've seen the reference implementations for dictionary and sorted dictionary. I've even fiddled with them in binary form way back when with Reflector. I expect the inserts and removal times to be longer - i'd be surprised if they weren't, but the searches? This is just wrong.
(The AVL tree implementation sucks - it will be improved)
Thank you for the polite tone of your response, Peter.
I am aware of Chris' comment on the prior post, and I do not interpret it as being a "blanket" invitation for posts, like this one, which are nothing but code. There is no "discussion" inherent in this post.
I take the privilege of being a "mentor" on CP seriously, and when I see content like this, which could contribute to the quality of CP in the long run ... if posted on the appropriate technical forum ... I will speak out.
