From Rosetta Code

Hi, and welcome to RC :-)
(It's nice to get language authors contributions).

Hi, your permutations example seems to be written to answer more than one task but in doing so becomes a not very good RC code example for those tasks as it shows extraneous answers and code not needed in the task. Far better if you used a library or module import system and tailored each example to the task at hand. I have flagged these examples for attention as I don't think it would be good for RC tasks if this unrelated output from examples was to spread.

The Executable library task specifically asks for the use of a library. --Paddy3118 (talk) 06:12, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I assume you meant the deranged anagrams task, which I have fixed. --Pete Lomax (talk)

That's great. Thanks. --Paddy3118 (talk) 11:00, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

I've uploaded (which just gives you a blank page) to in case that helps --Pete Lomax (talk) 08:35, 15 September 2015 (UTC)


I've noticed that you've reposted the off-site link to Phix code for Boids. Is there no possibility to post this code on-site? This is after all the whole point of the wiki. Not only because it allows easy code comparisons, but also because it makes it possible for people to change the code. Also all code on Rosetta is posted under the same license. And links can become broken. Rosetta Code really isn't intended as a link directory. Fwend (talk) 14:26, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

OK, done. I also added a screenshot, trust that is acceptable as an off-site link ;-) Pete Lomax (talk) 10:37, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, it looks great. :-) Fwend (talk) 20:28, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
