Very busy this week, I'm gonna get married tomorrow.
I could work a bit in the Perl seminar nevertheless, the timings are somewhat surprising, specially with large input files. The next thing I want to do is measuring memory usage, but I don't know how to do this well. The programs take a few seconds to complete, so for C and C++ I am using valgrind, but need to figure out what to do with the Perl/Java/Awk scripts. Since perl is written in C I guess valgrind perl script.pl would give meaningful data, but I am unsure about this.
As honeymoon we'll go from Barcelona to Nice, Venice, and Florence with our motorbike, and we'll come back by ship from Genoa.
