@andre matos: so split it into functions, pretty it up a little, and use that. Writing a program to solve a very difficult mathematical challenge can be a great code sample.

@faif: Copy-pasted code isn't necessarily garbage code. It could be good code the guy in the office next to you wrote. The problem with copy-pasted code is that it very quickly becomes an unmanageable maintenance/debugging nightmare.

Please don't use the term "real-time" in a context such as this. What you mean is simply "fast". Real-time has a special meaning in computer science and programming contexts.
