Question: What data structures libraries are present/being developed, for BYOND, and what data structures do they have?
Specifically, some sort of sorted array would be quite useful - something with log n add, remove, and containment testing, but I'm also considering whether it's worth writing my own data structures library.
Finally, after the GIAD, there's an idea I've been considering - some sort of library-in-a-day competition? There are a lot of things BYOND could use libraries for, and a LIAD could be a great way to get them started.
First step - come up with a way to make the acronym "ILLIAD".
Anyway, if someone (given that I'm suggesting it, probably me) ran some sort of library-in-a-day competition, would you enter? What changes would need to be made for you to enter? Would it be a good idea to increase the length of time allotted? Any other thoughts?
