Grumpy Old Man mode (IE, Wise and Omniscient Programmer Mode): "Is this going to be a mission critical component of the software that will handle hundreds of millions to billions of values in an array, day in and day out? If not, buzz of - ANY solution I come up with for a twenty element array will be finished so shortly after the 'Enter' key is pressed with modern hardware that it doesn't matter. All that matters is getting on to the next thing.

But then again, that probably isn't the right way to butter up a prospective job, although a good interviewer should recognize the truth to your statement and be much more inclined to hire you. Laugh | :laugh:

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
