Hey, hey, hey! Ease up on th' shootin' irons, pardners. I said -professional- looking, not more practical or portable. Yer talkin' to an old DOS dinosaur, an' we see things a bit different sometimes, y'heah?

Well, not winning the book only impedes my plans for world domination slightly, so I suppose angry retaliation really isn't all that necessary ... congratulations, guys!

I'm not going to be much help here, but I would be fascinated to learn more about programming on handheld platforms...

Well, this would be the 'flagship' algorithm. As far time spent in the code would go, this is likely the biggest bottleneck since it wil be repeated so many times. Most other places in the code wouldn't be as likely to be so time-critical. But, as you said, that challenge is for later, and it may not be as much of an issue once other parts of the code are in place. Besides, I suspect that optimization would not be the biggest problem facing me in such a project...

Thanks for the input.

If we're talking about compiling a finished product for distribution, I'd prefer distributing a more professional-looking .exe version to bytecode...

Perhaps I should add that this will likely be a recursive function, so even minor improvements in speed would bring exponential dividends. If that changes anything, anyway...

Can we put an OR-ELSE statement in there to preserve our own particular, peculiar little versions of our code?

Let's say I need to represent a chess position in an array and search it for the best move in the least time. Would I lose significant performance by using an ASCII representation, as opposed to something purely numeric? Is there something better than an array for this?

I can understand the point of most modifiers (static, private, etc.), but when might I need to use 'protected'?

As I understand this, in Java, the Stack area stores the references to an object. The actual object is stored in the heap area. When an object no longer has something on the stack which refers to it, it is garbage-collected (freed for other use).

In other words, we reference an object(located in the heap) through variables located in the stack. Did I get that right?
