Big Deal

I just whipped up this code in c# using Regular Expressions.

I found 1037 instances of "Relf" in cola in 15 milliseconds:

#region Using directives

using System;
using System.Collecti ons.Generic;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;
using System.Text.Reg ularExpressions ;


namespace ConsoleApplicat ion1
public class FileClass
public static void Main()
String s = ReadFromFile("c :\\sample\\Cola .txt");

Regex rex = new Regex("Relf");

DateTime init = DateTime.Now;

int icount = rex.Matches(s). Count; // returns 1

DateTime end = DateTime.Now;

TimeSpan duration = end.Subtract(in it);

Console.WriteLi ne("number of relfs " + icount);
Console.WriteLi ne(duration.Mil liseconds);

static String ReadFromFile(st ring filename)
StreamReader SR;
String S;
SR = File.OpenText(f ilename);
S = SR.ReadToEnd();
return S;

Hi Kelsey, Oops my last attempt only searched ten thousand words,
This time I'm searching 100 thousand words.

I'm using Cola.TXT as my test file, which is about 4 megs,
and contains over 2,000 of the most recent articles.

My web page is down right now... too much traffic ?

But when it comes up, I hope to put a more recent Cola.TXT here:
( I say, hope, because I'm using NoCharge.COM, free dialup )

Only spaces and below ( Ascii ) were considered whitespace.

Here were my latest results:
Searching the first one hundred thousand words in Cola.TXT.

.00167 Seconds to find 12 occurences of Relf .
.00089 Seconds to find 0 occurences of sesquipedalian .

My machine is very slow too, the L2 cache is only 128 KB,
with 256 MB of DRAM and a 40 gig hard disk.

When my web page comes up I'll put the .EXE and .CPP files here:

Not including my standard macros, but including the timing code,
this was my main(): <<
main() {
QueryPerformanc eFrequency( ( Quad * ) & Secnd ); Secnd_Dub = Secnd ;
FILE * fp = fopen( "Cola.TXT", "r" );
if ( ! fp ) { printf("_ Word.TXT _ Can't be Read." ); return ; }
int Sz = filelength( fileno( fp ) ) + 1 ; LnT Ln = { 0 };
{ LnP B = ( LnP ) malloc( Sz ); Sz = fread( B, 1, Sz, fp );
fclose( fp ); fp = fopen( "Results.TX T", "w" );
B [ Sz ] = 0 ; LnP P = B ; int Ch = * P --, Ch2 ;
Loop( 100000 ) { Inc ( Ln ) = P ; if ( ! Ch ) break ; Next_Tok }
if ( J < LLL ) {
fprintf( fp, "Found %d thousand words, needed 100.", J / 1000 );
fclose( fp ); return ; } }
fprintf( fp
, "Searching the first one hundred thousand words in Cola.TXT.\n\n") ;
LnP Pats [] = { "Relf", "sesquipedalian " };
Loop( sizeof Pats / sizeof * Pats ) { LnP Pat = Pats [ J ];
double Mark = Secs ;
int Cnt = 0 ; LoopXx ( Ln ) if ( Eq( P, Pat ) ) Cnt ++ ;
double Dur = Secs - Mark ;
char SecStr [ 99 ] ; sprintf( SecStr, "%1.5f" , Dur );
fprintf( fp, "%s Seconds to find %d occurences of %s .\n"
, SecStr + ( * SecStr == '0' ), Cnt, Pat ); } fclose( fp ); } >>
