Hi, Dave, and welcome to LiteratePrograms! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a couple of tips for newcomers:

  • If you haven't done so already, please take a look at how to write an article on LiteratePrograms. The markup is basically the same as that used on Wikipedia, but there are a few differences of which you should be aware.
  • Please try to include a descriptive edit summary with every edit you make.
  • Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

I hope you enjoy editing here! If you need help, post a question on the Public forum, ask Deco (the site creator), or just ask me on my talk page.

P.S. Thanks for your Quine contributions! --Allan McInnes (talk) 23:41, 11 October 2006 (PDT)

Thanks for the welcome, and you're welcome for the thanks. I'm afraid I'm still mostly ignorant of wiki markup, but I seem to have convinced noweb to do the right thing with the awk quicksort. Now to figure out a workaround for the javascript quine source... Dave 07:58, 12 October 2006 (PDT)

[edit] Generating all rationals (Python)

Nice article! This was on my wishlist. Fredrik 23:52, 22 November 2006 (PST)

Thanks; it was pretty easy after seeing the diagonal for the lattice points. (because the GCD says how many other lattice points a line to the origin would intersect, it might make an interesting animation to show how restricting to GCD==0 is equivalent to z-buffering or using a painter's algorithm to produce only the lattice points which are "visible" from the origin) Dave 12:50, 28 November 2006 (PST)

[edit] Quickhull (Python, arrays)

Another one I've wanted to see. Keep them coming, please :) - Fredrik 09:22, 7 February 2007 (PST)
