digitalmars.D - Random sampling in D -- blog post

reply Joseph Rushton Wakeling <joseph.wakeling webdrake.net> writes:
Hello all,

My patches to RandomSample were accepted earlier this month (thanks to both 
Jonathan and Andrei:-) so I thought I'd write a short blog post (which turned 
into a very long blog post...) about random sampling, the algorithms concerned, 
and its implementation in D.
http://braingam.es/2012/07/sampling-d/

If anyone's interested I may write up something more extended on the algorithms 
(if I can find a decent maths-notation solution for WordPress...) and on the D 
framework for random sampling (it could be fun to put up some creative examples 
of how to use it with different kinds of input).

Best wishes,

     -- Joe

You should know Chrome displays quite a weird stub while loading that page over a slow connection. Anyway, vote up! http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/wu7tx/random_sampling_in_the_d_programming_language/

That would be awesome, and we'd put it on the website. Andrei

Ack. That'll be the way that Chrome handles embedded website fonts -- doesn't display _anything_ until the fonts have loaded. I really must try and find a way round that.

I'll see what I can do. :-)
