AutoHotkey returns incorrect results for Quick Sort[edit]

With AutoHotkey, the Quick Sort example returns incorrect results. Can anybody explain why?

Where did this come from? Can we get some implementations in other languages? --Short Circuit 23:43, 4 February 2008 (MST)

I've written it bottom-up unless stated otherwise for some fragments. This task show Python strength in ad-hoc scripting. I think Ruby's version could be feasible. I don't have an expertise to write it myself. --Goku Sama 02:49, 5 February 2008 (MST)

Time performance vs space performance[edit]

There are circumstances where performance is measured as a metric of space consumed vs time consumed. Does anyone have any thoughts as to how we could create a task that can measure that metric? --Short Circuit 04:11, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

optional requirement[edit]

The Write float arrays to a text file task should be marked as an optional pre-requisite. In some languages using a file for the intermediate results would just add complexity to the task. --14:36, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
