  • Working on integers consume more memory?

    Here's an example where switching to int8/int16 sped up my program 3x, but insignificantly compared to development and compile times, namely from 15 to 5 ms. I haven't profiled it but I suspect it's because of the reduced memmove amounts in my improvised bsearch-sorted-array-insertion. Made this yesterday, solution to Advent of Code 2018 day 20:

    I made this jupyter notebook for a better idea and to directly compare different grid serial numbers. I think the condition "stop when no new max has been found twice in a row" will work most of the time. I tested a few other serial numbers and it seemed OK: the condition is only true directly AFTER the absolute maximum. But yes, there could well be other serial numbers where there is a dip of length 2 BEFORE the absolute maximum. Screenshot of the graph from the notebook:

  • [2018 day 9] [C] Fast solution to the marble game

    Well, I think I mostly got it. But what I couldn't figure out was which updates to skip, so maybe it can get a bit faster still. Time on the M1 Mac Mini was 4.3 ms for combined user+system, see below. That system time being as long as the user time is maybe from the massive heap allocation and init to zero at program start? I also tried to do it dynamically with malloc, without block initialisation, but that was a tiny bit slower, so I left it as a static array. Pi 400: 98 ms, old Macbook from 2013: 36 ms (both same deal: user time = system time). Code:
