The approximately 100 books below are for sale. Mostly a selection of mathematics
(numerical analysis mostly), computing science (graphics, ai, programming techniques,
theory, compilers, operating systems, Unix, languages (C, C++, Smalltalk, Java, Pascal,
Modula etc.), and a sprinkling of others (e.g. surviving as a consultant, writing
resumes, and so on).

Most are either new or in as-new condition. Some older ones have begun to attract
interest from collectors and that is noted (either as "Collectible" or "OOP"). The prices
are the average asking price by resellers for each book during October, and in cases
where there is insufficient activity to derive a price that way the price is set to 45%
of the list price for the book. Buyer pays for shipping by whatever method they select.

If you are interested in a book reply by email but don't forget to remove the "ABC" from
my reply address.

Properly speaking, this is the "as sort" -- that is, sorted as you
would like it to be. The arguments most implementations accept are
"if", "is", or <something else>.

The "as is" sort is the most time-efficient, but boring, variation

The "as if" sort is the most fantastic, but in some of the newer
implementations it produces no usable results apart from denial that
any actual action is necessary.

The "as something else" sort is more complex and its exact effect
depends on the something specified. For example: an "as telephone
numbers" sort will substitute the digits from a telephone keypad for
letters in the text and sort accordingly. See the manual for more
information.

Hope that helps.

Here is a sorting method that has the potential of being the fastest.
1. check if sorted, if so you are done
2. randomize the collection, go to 1

You have reinvented bogosort. Please do not toppost.

I would like to make a different request. Make sure you say something
original within the first 15 lines of a post. I get quite annoyed
with folk who DON'T top post, quote 3 pages that I have already read,
and then add one silly wisecrack.

STOP QUOTING SO ****ING MUCH. READING SOMETHING ONCE IS ENOUGH!!

Are you referring to CBFalconer's quoting of Phil...? Here it is in its
entirety:
----------------------------------------------------------------
> Here is a sorting method that has the potential of being the fastest.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Three lines. *LINES*, mind you, not *PAGES*. You, Roedy, might well
use one-line pages, but I wouldn't, because that would severely hamper
the reading of Usenet.

I, personally, get annoyed by people who top-post. Period.

neither. I waited for an opportunity to vent on this without picking
on a specific culprit. The practice of mindless quoting is
widespread.

I believe you should only quote the bare minimum. Just quote what you
are commenting on. Just quote the bare minimum to set the context for
your post. If someone wants to study the original post, they can hit
up arrow. Rereading and rereading previously posted material should
be the exception, not the rule.

But the posts that are most annoying are the ones that make you scroll
down and down and down to discover they are nothing but fluff.
Wisecracks SHOULD be top posted.

You should have said this when replying to CBFalconer. On Usenet, the
addressee of a reply to a post is the author of that post, if not stated
otherwise.

I still disagree. NOTHING should be top posted. If you find yourself
making the "but I don't want to scroll down" argument, then you're
quoting too much. Quoting less solves TWO problems: (1) you don't
have to top-post, and (2) you don't have to read pages and pages and
pages of quoted material.
I agree with you that there is too much mindless quoting, but you are
going the wrong way to get around it.

The blast is against those who complain about top posting. Top posting
is GOOD on one respect. It is at least is a step in the right
direction away from forcing people to read stuff they have seen many
times before -- especially those folk who quote with nests 10 posts
deep.

This will never be settled politically. People enjoy annoying each
other too much. I suggest a technological solution
