This is the tenth progress report from the Wide Finder Project. What with Vegas and the Commies, I’m behind on a lot of things, including the Wide Finder. This is another entry just to note other people’s work, which I really absolutely will buckle down and run on the big iron and report back and shower praise on the good ones and derision on the big misses.
Command Line · Paddy3118 has Wide Finder on the command line, which is unsurprising but good to have on the record.
PHP · Russ Beattie’s WideFinder in PHP is valuable if only for the sake of completeness.
C++ · From #hircus (hey, I don’t pick these stupid blogger handles) comes Tim Bray’s Wide Finder: a minimalist implementation. His first cut runs slower than Ruby so I suspect something’s wrong.
Erlang · And of course, the redoubtable and indefatigable Steve Vinoski is back with One More Erlang Wide Finder; applying my amazing powers of deduction to his filenaming convention, this is his fourteenth attempt.
Caoyuan Deng is on a relatively-sane fifth attempt: Learning Coding Parallelization (Was Tim's Erlang Exercise - Round V).
