comment Class of problems solvable by sed or stream editors
I think I might not have been clear enough in explaining the question. This question wants to understand the scope (class of) all problems solvable with sed, for example Turing complete languages can solve problems in the class of P and some of the NP problems in exponential time.

comment Class of problems solvable by sed or stream editors
Kent also, in the question that I linked to, it is not about whether "solvable by sed implies best way to solve it is sed", infact quite the opposite, if the problem is not solvable , by sed (or the computational model you are working in) it certainly can't be best way to solve it. Ofcourse you solved the problem using gnu-sed, but not all similar problems may be solvable by gnu-sed (and certainly not pure sed). I hope this explains the intent behind this question.

comment Class of problems solvable by sed or stream editors
Kent I understand your concerns, using sed for almost anything other than stream editing, i.e substitute;match;print etc, is probably not the most feasible of pursuits. My question was more of what is possible with sed, not what is feasible. After reading the FAQ, I understand this is not the best platform for such a question. I thank you for bringing out the full scope of what is practically(albeit a quite difficult) possible with sed.

comment Preferring Python over C for Algorithmic Programming
"They are too accustomed to having those abstractions provided to them." Does this assume that I learnt python before C and therefore am unable to adapt or something along those lines?

comment Preferring Python over C for Algorithmic Programming
@SK-logic Programming done solely for the purpose of solving a very specific problem mostly using a single algorithm is called Algorithmic programming. Developing an entire software, library, tool, UI, Website will never be referred to as algorithmic programming as such.

@Lundin Thanks for mentioning the disadvantages in the real world scenario.

comment Preferring Python over C for Algorithmic Programming
Since you are a user of TC and SPOJ. Is the trade off between time and simplicity very large if we use python for the code? I.e is it possible to make successful submissions using python if the same algorithm can be successfully submitted using C? (Yes I know it will/might vary greatly question to question but will there be a dis-advantage in most cases or just some?)

So basically researchers and Software Engineers have a designer Crafts-man relationship? And What about the utilization of both types of people in the industry?
