JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

I was getting pretty upset with this thing (good will and seeking knowledge carries you only so far at 4:00 AM, when you've been drowsy all day) so when, in frustration, I just *removed* the stupid my, I didn't expect it to work.

It did.

I've already implemented the sort. It occurs to me, though, that I have to make sure duplicates don't get on the list. I think I can fairly assume that the program won't create them; so I just need some form of error-checking just before it pushes the value into the array.

I may try implementing the whole ball of wax as a two-dimensional array, just to see if I can sort by the other ops. I think I can, but the stuff I've checked on it is ambiguous so far.

I feel better having gotten it to work...but it's a little hollow, considering that I don't know why it worked.

Oh well. I'll take what I can get for now, and research it when I'm getting paid to do web maintenance. ;)
