    Aha! I am such an idiot. Forget about the Eclipse thing. It's same as what you do in windows. It's painful being a noob.

    mine took 337ms to sort 2^20 items. Efficient or what!
    Same as mine. I found it does take considerably longer if you output the result though.

    My glandular fever has come back. Buuuuuuuuuuuuugger. I dunno what to do.
    Errr, that's pretty ****.

    I take it you've told yo' Dos and tutor already, I suggest you do as much revision as possible from your bed. You don't have lectures this term iirc mathmos correctly so it might not be disasterous and may well get you the special circumstances flagging for tripos.

    Hope you feel better soon

    It takes over a minute to sort 2^20. I ran out of stack on my laptop before that happens though.
    Stackoverflow is generally a bad sign you know. Comes generally from trying to be too clever and using recursion wrongly...

    How come you didn't tell me installing mplayer would be such a traumatic experience for a linux noob?

    Surely the worst it could be would be the normal:

    ./configure
    make
    make install

    But then Suse probably has an RPM or something of it if you look hard enough.

    storytime....


    many a moon ago, jesus caesarians (drinking soc) would always hold a garden party on jesus green, other colleges would come along, have a bit of fun in the nice weather etc. then one year girton monsters (or whatever they're called) came along and basically trashed the place. jesus boys were not happy. girton and jesus boys got into a bit of a scrap. which everyone else found far more entertaining than a general garden party (boys taking their tops off etc)

    so now the general party idea has been ditched, and every year the two drinking socs instead just meet on jesus green for this scrap. which involves them charging at a bottle of pimms or something? not quite sure. lots of drinking socs are going again this year, definitely the ****s, sybs and their guests (possibly baby ****s and sybs) some of the baby porcs, the ferrets etc.

    You do realise how utterly ridiculous that (and all the society names) sounds?

    PS: Shuai, yes, configure, make, make install is pretty standard for programs you're compiling from source. You can always read the INSTALL file anyway.

    Ok, well if you or Harriet invite me (in fact she owes me one as I invited her to one here) then I can be uncivilised.
